MATLAB

My first job in the U.S. was as a Teaching Assistant for an undergraduate computer science class CS 310 "Problem Solving Using Computers", geared towards engineering students, at UW-Madison. Numeric computation was taught using MATLAB. Also, I taught CS 412 "Introduction to Numerical Methods" at UW-Madison, which was entirely taught in MATLAB. Finally, as part of my doctoral dissertation, I designed and developed a simulator using MATLAB.
