Course Information

At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors and that you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know the faculty in your discipline.

Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. 

DSCI 340 | Algorithms & Data Structures
DSCI 440W | Machine Learning and Data Mining
DSCI 407 | Statistical Modeling and Regression
DSCI 210 | Data Visualization With Python
MATH 206 | Computational Linear Algebra
