I am a bioinformatician with a background in data mining and machine learning. I have extensive experience with machine learning applications in big data problems in modalities including tumor images, graphs interaction, strings, texts, protein, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and SPECT. I have attended UALR and proudly worked with Dr. Xiaowei Xu. My doctoral degree is in Applied Science. I successfully completed numerous real-world biomedical research projects. During my 10+ years of faculty appointment, I taught neural networks, general programming, image processing, mobile programming, web programming, database programming, data structures, human computer interaction, and microcomputer applications.

Teaching

Joy of teaching. This would be more accurate statement what I feel about this interactive process. Learning is not an encounter with cold truth on a textbook or screen presentations. As always, my focus is student learning, not my teaching. Learning is set by student learning outcomes in a college environment, but continues to occurs after the class meeting usually in office hours, emails, projects, and discussions.

I taught different types of courses in our department: face-to-face (traditional), online, semi-online, research projects, individual honor thesis or research, master thesis, are team-based courses. A few of them are here:
