How might COVID19 affect research opportunities within academic institutions?
I am majoring in Computer Science and Digital Art and was hoping to get involved with research as a means to build my resume.
As far as computer science goes, I am interested in cybersecurity, software engineering, and/or curriculum development for computer science learning.
As for digital art, I am interested in expanded cinema (VJing, specifically) and game programming.

This will create many different work streams and thought leadership sessions around the world in thinking through what we could have done better. Additionally, research on how to prevent this type of pandemic from ever happening again. Again, there are so many more impacts outside of the obvious health risk and it is imperative for us to research and explore any and all associated outcomes.
Start adding people in your field that you want to enter (add persons in cyber security, etc) have a professional picture yourself. Many times using linkedin (when i started my career) I was offered job openings and other interning style options just by adding people in my field and being open to new and exciting opportunities. You can also search via google and put in school (college) info and this will many times populate with research options.
Regarding going in to a physical site, might not work right now due to COVID
Its a very valid question for this covid-19 situation. Many of the students has similar question.
Yes covid -19 has a impact on the economy but I do not think that it will affect much on the research kind of opportunities in computer science domain. Mostly all of the software companies has moved to work from home environment. This R&D work will continue. You should keep connecting with people via linkedin or through your college Alumni's network. You will definitely get some good opportunity.
Many companies post the internship program on their website, keep an eye on such postings.
Wow – Sounds like you’ve got a great career started!
It’s very likely that the COVID19 crisis will accelerate the need for computer simulations coupled with digital art in academic research for the future. The world will become more reliant on accurate simulations for any kind of new development or disaster.
Right now, the research world wants to rapidly know how to interpret, predict and present what’s going to happen with virus transmission, experimentation efforts, mutations, equipment shortages, illness effects on various sectors of the population, etc.
Accurate, statistical simulations can run a variety of scenarios and compress valuable time.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT, is hosting a 48-hour virtual hackathon from 03APR-05APR20 with the goal to develop solutions that address the most pressing technical, social, and financial issues caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
You might be able to participate in this to better determine what academic research might need in the future, to network and to strengthen your resume. Looks like they’re looking for a wide variety of participants.
Best of luck in your chosen career direction.
But have you though of research and development within private companies ?
The need is there.
Companies have internship programs over the summer. They are adapting to the work from home.
There is definitively new field to explore due to Covid. This is good that you share what you have learned and what you are interested in.
You can search via google or directly to companies.
if you want to explore new opportunities....
