Ph.D. in Computer Science

I am currently working on my PhD in the field of Computer Science at the Columbia University, New York. The research facilities are top notch at the university and there is ample opportunity for academic growth.

Working at Prof.Fernandez's laboratory

As part of my post doctoral research in physical chemistry I worked under Prof. Julio M Fernandez at the Columbia University. It was a great learning experience for me and I enjoyed working in his lab.

Disappointing at best

Columbia would rank as the single worst experience of my life. I have never encountered so many callous, mean spirited, and unprofessional administrators who truly could care less about you. Yet, they are happy to collec read full review

About the accommodation

Columbia University Housing Services provide housing facilities for approximately 5,200 undergraduate students. 94 percent of all undergraduates and 99 percent of all first-year students live in residence halls. There are 17 undergraduate residence halls and 16 brownstones (which house 10 fraternities, 3 sororities, and 3 special interest communities) located on and around the Morningside campus. In addition, they also provide summer, conference, and guest accommodations. All first-year students are housed on South Lawn, the heart of undergraduate life at Columbia. Proximity to Butler Library, Alfred Lerner Hall, John Jay Dining Hall, Health Services, and the First Year/Sophomore Academic Advising Center make these residence halls convenient and have a connection to the Columbia community. Four different housing options are available to first years: Carman, Furnald, John Jay, and the all-class integrated Living Learning Center in Wallach and Hartley. Each hall has a unique set of features and benefits, from singles to corridor-style living. Room Selection for current students is an active process with many choices and options, including, but not limited to, living with friends in a suite or living alone in a single, air-conditioned room on a corridor. Laundry View is an Internet application that allows students to monitor the status of washers and dryers in connected laundry rooms through a Web browser. Laundry View was developed in response to requests for greater control over laundry activities. Since many people tend to do their laundry during similar time periods, it results in busy laundry rooms. The details of the Residence Halls can be found in the website given below http://www.columbia.edu/cu/housing/docs/residence-halls/index.html. For general inquiries about the housing students can mail to housing@columbia.edu.
