Welcome to the Computer Systems Lab (CSL) at Yale University.  CSL is an interdisciplinary laboratory with faculty from both Electrical Engineering and Computer Science that have a shared research interest in computer systems. CSL research encompasses both theory and practice in a wide range of domains including architecture, biologically-inspired computing, certified systems software, distributed systems, networking, operating systems, programming languages, security, storage, and VLSI.

Graduate students working in CSL are admitted to either the Electrical Engineering or Computer Science department, but are encouraged to apply to the department that is closest to their research interests. Most faculty members in CSL have appointments in both CS and EE, making it easy for students to work across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
