Research Groups and Centers

Research groups are an important component to our active and vibrant department. These groups may consist of a few faculty members, their graduate students and undergraduate students or they may represent one of the major activities of the departmental research and education agenda. Furthermore, the research groups are overlapping in that faculty are members of multiple groups and the activities of each group support activities of the other groups.
