Teaching

After an amazing sabbatical year, I am back to teaching. In Fall 2016 I am teaching CS 565.

In the past I have taught Data Mining (CS 565) for six years, Combinatorial structures (CS 131) for four years and multiple seminars. The most recent seminar I taught was in Spring 2015 a seminar on ‘‘Data Analysis in Python".
