Computer Science Professor David Chiu is focused on finding useful information in a world that’s drowning in data.

Professor of Computer Science David Chiu taught his first class at age 22, in grad school, and immediately fell in love with teaching. Since coming to the university in 2014, he’s taught everything from introductory to advanced classes, and in 2022, he received the President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. We talked with Chiu about the golden age of dial-up internet, his research on data management, and creating an inclusive, student-centered classroom experience.
