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.) Further details can be found on my web sites http://www.cs.memphis.edu/~mgarzon and http://webmc.memphis.edu/.
