The University of Memphis Expert List is a source for media needing subject experts
to provide commentary on or analysis of news events and other topics.
Many of the faculty listed are also available for speaking engagements - look for
the "Speakers Bureau" designation.

Posted October 9, 2013:
Each fall we invite University of Memphis faculty to sign up on our Experts List.
We are asking faculty to please sign up by October 25.
Note that your submissions will go through an approval process with your dean after
October 25. Your submissions, therefore, will not be immediately viewable at the time
the information is provided.

About the Expert:
My research currently focuses on interactive computation. Two main threads are biomolecular computing (both in-vitro and in-silico) and human-computer interaction, particularly the design and implementation of web-based virtual agents for IT education and e-commerce. Current work is continuing to develop EdnaCo, a distributed virtual test tube to assess the reliability and efficiency of biomolecules in experiments to solve computational and biotechnology problems. Outcomes of this work are new methods for microarrayrndesign and analysis, syntethic models of biological processes (such as malariarninfection by p. falciparum), and DNA-based associative memories for storing and mining terabytes of data in feasible times. Other works have helped create avatars for autonomous intelligent tutors and real-time high bandwith videophones. Other interdisciplinary research interests include foundations of computing, neural networks and applications of computer science (e.g., e-commerce.)
