Patrick Taylor

Assistant Teaching Professor

Computer Science

My current and near future teaching interests include data structures, introduction to programming, introduction to computer security, and bioinformatics, as well as pedagogy itself. My background and continued scientific curiosity includes topics such as neural networks, reinforcement learning, biologically inspired AI and computation, computational biology, bioinformatics, computer networking and security, cryptography, super-Turing computation, open software licensing, and human-computer interaction. Further, I am deeply intrigued by variations on experimental design and analysis itself.

Teaching Interest: Data Structures, Introduction to Computer Security, Introduction to Programming, Bioinformatics
