Chris Pollett's Master's Students and Undergraduate Research Students
Working with me
If you are interested in working with me on a master's project please send me an e-mail to schedule an appointment. I prefer to take on students who have taken at least one class with me and have done well in that class. Topic areas in which I'd be interested in advising students are theory, quantum computation, graphics or video game design, or AI and databases. Please look at the [My Guidelines/Templates] link for more of the operational details of doing a project with me.
At this time I am not accepting additional students.
Current ideas for future projects
