Research Annual Report 2013-2014

Research at the University at Albany holds great promise, and our ability to realize that promise is getting a boost through new scholars joining our faculty ranks.

As part of the NYSUNY 2020 initiative, UAlbany is adding 187 faculty positions over the course of five years. These new faculty members, working closely with our seasoned faculty, are building the strength of our academic and research programs.

The impact and promise of UAlbany’s research enterprise extend across many fields. Our investigators are working to identify keys to better health, gain insights from big data, improve climate forecast systems, and educate the next generation of scientists. Our faculty are leaders in digital government research and practice. They are innovators, entrepreneurs, and partners. They are deeply engaged in the community and with the world.

This report highlights a few of the many projects under way and offers a glimpse of how UAlbany’s outstanding faculty are advancing our promise.
