UB Blockchain ThinkLab is a collaboratory involving faculty, students, staff, entrepreneurs and industry representatives who are passionate about blockchain technology.
An informal group guides the process, helping to create courses, host presentations, develop hackathons and build industry/university relations. While not necessarily listed among the organizing group, several deans and administrative leaders support the initiative and have assisted with the implementation of courses, events and projects.
I am a Research Associate Professor at University at Buffalo, Computer Science and Engineering Department. I have been involved in the STEM area research, curriculum development and instruction for the past two decades. My current interest is in blockchain application development.
I also teach courses in data-intensive computing and emerging applications and platforms such as Hadoop, Spark and Tensorflow. I am the Program Director of the SUNY approved certificate program on Data-intensive Computing at University at Buffalo. I have been the Principal Investigator on four National Science Foundation (NSF) grants and a co-investigator in six Instructional Innovative Instructional Technology grants (SUNY-IITG).
Blockchain ThinkLab excites and attracts technology-minded thinkers from industry, community and the university. These business executives, entrepreneurs, students, faculty and staff support the ThinkLab as it explores the opportunities in blockchain technologies.
