I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of Cincinnati in 2001. I am currently
a Professor in the Computer Science Department at Hofstra University. Here is my complete CV.
My research interests are:
- Neural cognitive models
- Understanding creativity in individuals and groups
- Computational neuroscience
My research goal is understanding creativity in individuals and groups through modeling and data analysis.
My recent work includes developing algorithms for automatic assessment of novelty
in short text, studying interactions between group and individual level creativity, and developing neural conceptual models for
idea generation processes.
