Presentation

I am an assistant professor in Computer Science at the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences, at Augusta University, in Georgia, USA. I am also a member of the ForML Lab, a member of the Graduate School, the Campus Champion of Affordable Learning Georgia, and a mentor for the African American Male Initiative.

Prior to that, I have been a post-doctoral researcher at the Appalachian State University (Boone, NC, USA), at the LACL (Créteil, Val-de-Marne, France), at the I2M (Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône, France), and a PhD student at the LIPN (Villetaneuse, Île-de-France, France).

Please refer to my resume for a more complete presentation, and find below information about my teaching, my research, internships and projects, as well as miscellaneous factoids and how to contact me.

Teaching

Currently (Fall 2022)

This semester, I am responsible for

Students can have a look at my "Quick Reflexion on Course Evaluations", which includes my previous evaluations, to be better prepared for the classes I teach and know what to expect.

Notes

Research

I work in the vast field of computational logic, which uses mathematical reasoning to discover and explain the mechanisms of computation.

You might want to have a look at (in decreasing order of preference)

If I were to use keywords, it would probably be

Internships and Projects

Please, contact me if you are interested in an internship with me. Some examples of internships proposals can be found below.

In the past, I have had the pleasure of working with (in no particular order) Bryana Vinson, Bobby Mcmanus, Minh Nguyen, Poonam Veeral, Cystal Anderson, Tim Cuny, John Natale, Assya Sellak, Mark Holcomb, Noah Sleeper and Hunter Wilkins, and I currently work with Peter Browning, CJ Tran and Neea Rusch.

Current Projects

I am mostly working on the StATyCC project with Neea Rusch lately.

I am also involved in the project led with Drs. Andrew Balas and Tiffany Townsend, Practices of outstanding productivity in biomedical research, that involves CJ Tran and Noah Sleeper. Some of the code written for that project is on-line.

I am also investigating and implementing concurrent and reversible process algebras with Peter Browning.

Miscellaneous

Letterhead for the School

I wrote a letterhead for the Augusta University using XeTeX and pandoc, you can download and preview it on-line.

Template for MS & PhD Students

I wrote the template for the MS and PhD students at our School, you can find it on-line.

Traveling with Augusta University

I wrote a small guide to discuss how traveling is handled at Augusta University (it is quite probably outdated).

Reviewing Research Papers

I keep some notes to share some resources for first-time reviewers.
