Teaching

Fall 2020 Schedule
  CS 63: Artificial Intelligence    MWF, 12:30-1:20pm  
  CS 63 Lab    F, 3:00-4:30pm  
  Office hours     TBD  

In the past, I have taught Intro Programming, Intermediate Programming, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Computer Ethics.

Research Interests

My primary research interests lie in the intersection of artificial intelligence and machine learning; much of my recent research has been on the topic of deep learning. I am also interested in computer ethics, especially in relation to the use of big data and machine learning in real-world contexts.
