Associate Professor
Anderson 223


I am an Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department, and I also serve as the Program Chair of the Master of Science in Engineering program. My teaching interests are broad and bridge the gap between engineering and computer science. Some of my favorite undergraduate courses include Computer Systems and Networks, Computer Organization, Random Signals, and Advanced Digital Design. For graduate courses, I enjoy teaching High-Performance Computing (HPC), Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Computer Science, and Digital Image Processing.

My research group consists of several undergraduate and graduate students who actively investigate machine learning, natural language processing, high-performance computing, and Cloud computing. Our goal is to guide domain scientists in effectively using these technologies for their applications. To achieve this goal, we combine advanced mathematical concepts with computer programming to develop user-friendly frameworks. Our popular frameworks include the A2Cloud series, which helps domain scientists with Cloud resource selection, and ChatReview, a natural language processing framework that simplifies the analysis of large survey data. Our target domain scientists are chemists, physicists, educators, and medical professionals. If you share our goal of advancing science using computer engineering, I invite you to join us.
