DASlab is a new laboratory at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). The lab was formed in January 2014 when Stratos Idreos joined Harvard SEAS. DASlab currently consists of 3 PhD students, 1 postdoctoral researcher and 9 undergraduate researchers while it is set to double its graduate student population in the next one to two years. The lab is part of a growing community of systems and computer science researchers at Harvard; computer science faculty is scheduled to grow by 50\% in the next few years.
The main focus of DASlab is on designing data systems that (a) make it easy to extract knowledge out of increasingly diverse and growing data sets and (b) can stand the test of time.
