The intellectual core of the Institute is its array of Fellows—leading researchers who share in the Institute’s mission to drive research through a computational lens. The Institute has several groups of Fellows:

  • Institute Fellows are outstanding researchers at the core of the Institute. Their backgrounds cover a wide range of disciplines including computer science, political science, engineering, and many others.
  • Data Science Faculty Fellows are talented faculty from across the University who substantively participate in large collaborative endeavors that go beyond their own research agendas and take an active role in the evolution of the Data Science Initiative. 
  • Junior Faculty Fellows are early career researchers who are selected by the Steering Committee through a competitive nomination process for a three-year appointment.
  • Visiting Scholars are scholars from other institutions spending time at the Institute in collaborative research endeavors.
  • Research Fellows include both faculty whose research projects are funded by the Institute and researchers who have distinguished themselves in contributions to the computational work of the Institute.
  • Graduate Student Fellows are outstanding PhD students who pursue computational and data-driven research at Boston University.
  • Postdoctoral Research Associates have recently earned a PhD and are currently working on a research project of the Institute.

Regardless of what type, past Institute Fellows continue to be ambassadors of the Hariri Institute for Computing mission to foster interdisciplinary research in the crossroads of computing and computation science and engineering!
