- Campus Life
Doctoral students in computer science at NYU Abu Dhabi conduct research in a number of labs, in the Division of Science or the Division of Engineering.
Computer Science Labs
Lab Research Summary Principal Investigator Computational Approaches to Modeling Language Lab
The CAMeL Lab's research area is Computational Linguistics / Natural Language Processing including specifically Arabic and Arabic dialect morphology and syntax, machine translation, dialogue systems and sentiment analysis.
Computational Geometry Lab
The CG Lab is interested in research on discrete and computational geometry, extremal combinatorics, and approximation algorithms.
Cyber Security and Privacy Lab
The CSP Lab is interested in research targeting the enhancement of security and privacy of current and future IT and communication systems. Specific interests include the security of wireless systems and applications, such as secure localization and jamming-resistant communication, mobile-, protocol- and system-level security as well as other aspects of privacy.
Design Technology Lab The DT Lab is interested in real-world technological design problems regardless of the field of study, including: history, literature, and sciences. The lab's mission is to develop a generation of designers and entrepreneurs who will lead technological development.

Lab Research Summary Principal Investigator Applied Interactive Multimedia Laboratory
AIM Lab research interests include the conception, engineering, and utilization of novel haptic interfaces as a new media in Human-Computer Interaction.
Cyberphysical Systems Lab
Use of smart devices such as smartphones is ubiquitous in all facets of everyday life. These systems are very complex and generate big data, whence their design, management, and data mining constitute challenging tasks. Our goal is to devise architectures, algorithms and protocols that guarantee an efficient and robust operation.
Design for Excellence Lab
Electronic chips manufactured today exhibit a higher defect rate, fail more often during their mission-mode operation, die quicker in the field, and thanks to globalization and outsourcing, are more prone to security threats such as counterfeiting, IP piracy and hardware trojans. Our mission is to design these electronic chips with built-in defense mechanisms.
Modern Microprocessor Architectures Lab
Our research explores all aspects of modern microprocessors.
Multimedia and Visual Computing Lab
The lab serves as an intellectual hub for faculty, researchers, and students from both the New York and Abu Dhabi campuses to study and address the key challenges in multimedia and visual data processing.
