I received my graduate and undergraduate degrees in Computer Science at the University of Georgia located in Athens, Georgia under the direction of Dr. Budak Arpinar(Major Professor), Dr. John Miller(Committee Member), and Dr. Liming Cai(Committee Member). My research interests are in the area of the Semantic Web and how it can be used in Bioinformatics. Specifically, this involves applying ontologies to biological information systems to enhance the query process and to provide higher quality results. I also have a great deal of interest in Computational Biology, Algorithms, and Theory of Computation.
