Sergio Alvarez, Associate Professor
B.S., Universidad Javeriana; M.S., Universidad de Los Andes; Ph.D.,
University of Maryland
Sergio Alvarez's current research is in the areas of data mining and machine learning, particularly as applied to the analysis of clinical medical data. He is also interested in foundational issues related to performance analysis of data mining and machine learning systems.
William Ames, Senior Lecturer
B.S., M.S., University of Michigan
William Ames teaches a wide variety of courses, with a particular interest in Computer Graphics and Computer Architecture. He participates in the design of hardware and software to support a number of research projects, including the EagleEyes project, which allows severely disabled people to control a computer by moving their eyes.
Hao Jiang, Assistant Professor
Ph.D., Simon Fraser University
Hao Jiang's research focus is computer vision. His interests include object recognition, matching, 3D shape reconstruction, tracking and action recognition. He has been studying efficient schemes to tackle these problems based on relaxation methods, graph methods, PDE methods and machine learning schemes. He is also interested in multimedia information processing, integration and large scale realtime media systems.
Katherine Lowrie, Adjunct Associate Professor
B.S., M.S., Ph.D., Purdue University
Katherine Lowrie is the Undergraduate Program Director for the Computer Science Department. She teaches a variety of courses, with a particular interest in Computer Organization and Computer Architecture.
Robert Muller, Associate Professor
A.B., M.S., Indiana University; Ph.D., Boston University
Robert Muller is primarily interested in computational systems biology and in the development of formal, machine-executable specifications of cellular processes. He is also interested in the application of type systems to the design and implementation of reliable and efficient programming languages.
Edward Sciore, Chairperson and Associate Professor
B.S., Yale University; M.S.E., Ph.D., Princeton University
Edward Sciore's research interests lie primarily in the field of database systems, especially database design, web-based data access, metadata, and the meaningful communication of data between disparate sources. He is also interested in object-oriented design methodologies, in particular how applications interace with database systems and other middleware.
Robert Signorile, Associate Professor
B.S., Queens College; M.S., New York University; M.S., Ph.D.,
Robert Signorile's interests are in distributed systems, networks, agents and simulation. He is currently pursuing work that attempts to merge artificial intelligence techniques (such as learning and planning methodologies and distributed agents) with formal simulation. Another area of research is in applied distributed computing with special interest in multi-agent based simulation and agent based modeling for social simulation. He plans to begin work with distributed sensor networks, perhaps with some simple robots as the experimental platform.
Howard Straubing, Professor
A.B., University of Michigan; Ph.D., University of California at Berkeley
Howard Straubing's research is in the theory of computation, particularly the connections among logic, automata and computational complexity. His current research projects involve algebraic and model-theoretic approaches to circuit complexity and to automata operating on unranked trees.
