About DISSECT


What is Computational
Thinking?


Computational thinking to me is;


“Thinking outside the box”, using modern tools to
solve age old problems.


Designing the tools to solve the problem, then
addressing the problem itself.


What is Grad School?


Grad School is the icing on the cake of life. Just
when you think you have finished all the
schooling you will ever need…..along comes
grad school.


However it is not as hard to retain interest
because they are classes of YOUR choosing.
Not some preplanned
curriuculum
.

Why I Chose Grad School


The biggest motivator for me was the large
disparity in job openings between a generally
higher educated individual and someone with a
graduate degree.


Second I really enjoy the specialty classes that I
have chosen and they motivate me to learn
more!

Research Title


Currently I am in between projects however,
starting in Spring of 2012 I will have the honor
of working with Dr.
Xu

in cataloging the biome
of the mosquito to determine what changes
enable the malarial plasmodium to inhabit and
survive inside the mosquito.
