MEng Thesis Research Opportunities

Research assistantships for students working on a Masters of Engineering (MEng) thesis may be available with these CSAIL research projects. If you are interested, contact the researchers involved in these projects directly through their websites.

Note: MEng thesis research opportunities are open only to current MIT MEng students.

  • Automated quantitative analysis of animal behavior is an important tool for assessing the effects of diseases, drugs, gene mutations, and perturbations in neural circuits. Automating behavioral analysis addresses the inherent limitations of human assessment (time, cost, and reproducibility) and allows researchers to study behaviors over longer time scales than typically studied.
    Developed from a computational model of motion processing in the primate visual cortex, we built a computer vision system to recognize a typical set of 8 behaviors of single mice in the home cage (see...
