Matrix Algebra with Computational Applications is a collection of Open Educational Resource (OER) materials designed to introduce students to the use of Linear Algebra to solve real-world problems. These materials were developed specifically for students and instructors working in a "flipped classroom" model that emphasizes hands-on problem-solving activities during class meetings, with students watching lectures and completing readings and assignments outside of the classroom.
IEEE HPEC 2021 Presentation
Nicholas Grabill, Kai Pinckard and I presented our most recent work on the SEE-Segment Project at the IEEE HPEC Converence. This is work that both students conducted during the summer of 2020 as part of the XSEDE Empower program.

Davin Lin's Final Project Presentation (SEE-Classify)
In the summer of 2021 Davin Lin worked with me as part of the ICER/ACERS REu program on his project titled "Simple Evolutionary Exploration in Classification Algorithms for Supervised Learning"
Genetic algorithms (GAs) find good solutions to search problems through a process inspired by evolution. Solutions are randomly selected …
Nate Britton's Mid-Sure Project Presentation (Transfer learning)
In the summer of 2021 Nate Britton worked with me as project titled "Reexamining Transfer Learning Image Segmentation Hypothesis by Scaling Up"
Image segmentation is a process in which an image is separated into foreground (areas of interest) and background regions. Image segmentation is used as a first step in …
Making an Effective Video Presentation
I was asked to give an second of two "effective presentation" tutorials to a group of REU students at Texas A&M. This second part covers how to make an effective presentation with a focus on scientific introductions. I pulled heavily from the CCQH method described here:

Camtasia Studio tutorial
I was asked to give an "effective presentation" tutorial to a group of REU students at Texas A&M. As I talked with the organizers we thought it would be helpful to do a two part tutorial. The first is more of a technical, hands-on workshop on how to use …read more
SEE-Insight Research Group
This week we had a bunch of new students join the SEE-Insight research group. I put together a quick introductory presentation for them. I thought it came out fairly well so I decided to post in here in case anyone is interested in learning more about what our group is …read more
Refrigerator Shelf Repair
Our GE refrigerator shelf broke a few weeks ago. The connector on the door side was really weak and poorly designed.
Here is the other side to show you what it looks like when it is not broken.
I decided to 3D print a replacement. The design is fairly simple …read more
