Machine Learning for Biomedical Informatics

This was an introduction to Machine Learning module taught as part of a methods survey course at Vanderbilt University to incoming graduate students in the Biomedical Informatics Department in 2019 and 2018. All homeworks were given as Jupyter notebooks using Python, and are available on the course repositories: [2019], [2018], and lecture slides are available on Google Drive: [2019], [2018].

Interactive Exploration of Topics in Multivariable Calculus

This is a simple interactive tool exploring the connection between the derivative and gradient in calculus. I used it as part of a 5-week intensive boot-camp aimed specifically at minority retention in engineering at UC San Diego. [Interactive Demo], [Code]

Introduction to Scientific Computing in iPython

This a sample of the statistical computing workshop given several times to different audiences, introducing them to scientific computing/programming in Python using the interactive Jupyter/iPython notebooks. [Code]
