About Us

Computing for the Environment (CS4Env) at the University of Washington supports novel collaborations across the broad fields of environmental sciences and computer science & engineering. We seek to catalyze new efforts, create a community of cross-disciplinary researchers, and position teams to be competitive for additional funding opportunities. The initiative engages environmental scientists and engineers, computer scientists and engineers, and data scientists in using advanced technologies, methodologies and computing resources to accelerate research that addresses pressing societal challenges related to climate change, pollution, biodiversity and more.

The Computing for the Environment initiative is supported in part by the Allen School, the College of the Environment, the College of Engineering, the eScience Institute, the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering Endowed Fund for Excellence, and a gift from Google.
