Hi! 👋🏾 Welcome to my corner of the internet 🌐.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science 💻 Department at Furman University 🏫.

I received my PhD 🎓 from State University of New York 🗽 at Stony Brook advised by Dr. Steven Skiena and Dr. Lilianne Mujica Parodi.

My research interests lie at the intersection of data science 📊, machine learning🤖, computational neuroscience 🧠 and computational social science ⚖️.

Visualizing Dynamic Networks I am currently working on extending Hierarchical Edge Bundling and Force-Directed edge bundling for dynamic graphs towards mechanistic interpretability of artificial neural networks as well as for improved diagnostics of time-varying biological functional connectivity networks. Demo (under development)
Improving Participation and Success of Underrepresented Students in Computer Science I am currently working on better understanding and improving participation and success of underrepresented students in Computer Science by mining data from Integrated Post-Secondary Education System (IPEDS).
