About Me

I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley, which was previously the University of Texas-Pan American.

Research

I study algorithmic self-assembly as a member of the Algorithmic Self-Assembly Research Group at UTRGV. We explore models of self-assembly such as those inspired by DNA. Other research interests are: machine learning, artificial intelligence, deep learning, natural language processing, and information retrieval.

My co-authors are: Cameron Chalk, Erik Demaine, Martin Demaine, Bin Fu, Alejandro Huerta, Mario Maldonado, Robert Schweller, Lucian Silcox, Emmett Tomai, Luis Vega, Andrew Winslow, and Tim Wylie.
