Security & Privacy Research Application

Hello! The following application is for UW CSE students who are interested in working on research projects in the Security & Privacy Research Lab (

Interested undergraduate and Masters students are encouraged to apply for independent study (e.g., CSE 498/499). For proper project placement, all applications must be completed ONE WEEK before the course registration deadline for the quarter in which the research will occur. We can only take a set number of students each quarter that we match to a fitting project. Please provide us with as much detail as possible so that we can find an appropriate match.

Also, please remember that graded independent study requires about 3-5 physical hours of work for each hour of course credit. As such, project expectations may include a project proposal, bi-weekly project updates (in addition to meetings with the project mentor), and a final summary presentation. A paid research position may be an option for future quarters.
