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 (

Responses to this application will be visible to security lab faculty and PhD students.

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 at least one week before the course registration deadline for the quarter in which the research will occur, and preferably sooner. 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.
