Fostering creativity in the minds of students is one of the most rewarding experiences in academia. Towards this end my, aim is to facilitate students by: (1) providing them the basic foundations of concepts, methods, and techniques; (2) encouraging them to be creative in the application of the basic foundations to unique problems; and (3) motivating them to challenge the foundations to develop novel approaches for new problems. I believe such a model will enable our future graduates to tackle a variety of scientific, social, and environmental challenges.
CSC 495/693 - Data Science
The course is highly interactive, and will explore the theories, techniques, and the tools necessary to gain insights from such datasets. Using a problem-based learning philosophy, students are expected to make use of such technologies to design data solutions that can process and analyze real-world datasets for a variety of scientific, social, and environmental challenges.
