Bit of a late update; things have been busy!
This semester, we'll be seeing three students graduate from the lab! Alekhya Chennupati will graduate this December with a Master's in Computer Science, after having successfully defended her thesis this past May which examined quantitative measures of ciliary motion. Narita Pandhe is working toward a defense date this semester, and is planning to graduate with a Master's in Computer Science. Her thesis is investigating a two-stream spatio-temporal generative model of neutrophils. Ankita Joshi is also working toward a defense date this semester, and will graduate with a Master's in Artificial Intelligence. Her research is in the implementation of an end-to-end scalable spectral clustering algorithm, to be released as open source.
We wish them all the best of luck!
We have a couple of new additions to the group as well! Roi Ceren is not technically new as he enters his final year of Ph.D. studies in Computer Science, but with any luck his first year in this group will be his last as a Ph.D. student! He is working to finalize his thesis in scalable decision theory with an application in gaming reinforcement behavior. Dominic Gray is a new Ph.D. student in the IDEAS program; with interests in public health and biosurveillance, he is jointly supervised between Dr. Quinn and Dr. John Drake of Ecology.
Rajeswari Sivakumar and Christian McDaniel are new Master's students in Artificial Intelligence, and have both hit the ground running this semester in diving into their research in neuroscience by participating in the Parkinson's DREAM Challenge.
Meanwhile, Dr. Quinn is teaching the first-ever offering of CSCI 4360/6360 Data Science II, and is applying for grants at a record pace--four in the coming month of October alone! Fingers crossed!
Good luck to everyone this fall!
Happy new year!
With this batch of updates, we bid a hearty congratulations and fond farewell to Madhura Gadgil, who successfully defended her master's thesis Large-Scale Semi-Supervised Learning last December. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!
We also welcome a couple new faces to the group: Jonathan Waring and Charles Lu, both Computer Science majors. Jonathan will be working on biosurveillance, and Charles in deep learning. Good luck to both!
Changed the layout a little--the "Courses" link up top now directs to a full page with links to previous courses I've taught and current courses I am currently teaching.
Other changes include updates to the publications and presentations pages with new materials, as well as updated research personnel.
Still working on the site, but at this point everything should be functional and most of the content should be up and running!
Working on adding content to the group website. Keep checking back for updates!
