The original CS for All started here in NM!

NEW! September 1, 2015

The NASA Swarmathon Launches!

We live in a complex world. Many of the greatest challenges in science and engineering require understanding how complex systems evolve, what makes them efficient, scalable and robust, and why they fail. Our lab takes a highly interdisciplinary approach to understanding complexity: we develop computational and mathematical models of biological systems (particularly ant colonies and immune systems) and we apply what we learn in biologically inspired computation (particularly swarm robotics).

In 2016 I became PI of the CSforAll program, started in NM by Irene Lee in 2012, at the forefront of CS education. NM CS for All has trained over 800 students, 75% of them women and/or students of color. These groups have been historically underrepresented in STEM, and particularly in Computer Science, but that changes NOW!

I am the PI of the NASA Swarmathon, a challenge for students from Minority Serving Institutions to develop algorithms for cooperative robotics and revolutionize space exploration.

I am an Associate Professor in UNM Computer Science with a secondary appointment in the UNM Department of Biology and am External Faculty of The Santa Fe Institute.
