I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Kennesaw State University since Fall 2016. My research interests include Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Pattern Recognition, and Numerical Optimization.

Prior to joining Kennesaw State, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science & Information Systems at Texas A&M University-Commerce in 2015-2016. I graduated with a Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at Arlington, where I worked at the Biomedical Computing & Intelligent System Lab (BIOMECIS) under the advising of Dr. Jean Gao.

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
