Thoughts from Our PhD Students

“When I came to Northeastern, it was the first place I was treated like a real person, a person with potential.”

“It’s really fun because my research project is not normal.”

“I like the feeling of doing research, being totally focused on one thing, one problem."

“I like the focus on interdisciplinary research at Northeastern. I have learned a lot from people other than computer scientists during my time here."
