About Adrian

I've completed my PhD in bioinformatics and computational biology at Boston University, and have an undergraduate degree in computer science and neuroscience from the University of Toronto.

I've taught undergraduate introductory statistics classes at Boston University (MA213; co-instructor) and Lesley University (CMATH2142), and have also worked as a teaching fellow in biology (human physiology) and various Computer Science classes. I've also worked in high-school biology classrooms as an NSF GK-12 teaching fellow.

I have experience and interest in teaching stats to non-math majors, as many of my students have to take stats as a requirement for life sciences or psychology programs.

In computer science, I'm most fluent in Python, but also know C, C++ and Java. I also have expertise in most aspects of bioinformatics and computational biology, applied statistics and machine learning, general molecular biology and genetics, and biochemistry.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C++

My undergraduate degree is in Computer Science, and included numerous courses that used both C and C++. I have over a decade of experience in scientific computing, and have often used C++ for applications where performance is an issue. I've also had some experience with writing C++ GUI applications using the Qt framework.

Computer Programming

I've completed a PhD in Bioinformatics at Boston University, and a B.Sc(Hon) in Computer Science and Neuroscience at the University of Toronto.

I have over 15 years of experience as a programmer in academia and industry, and have worked with many different languages, including Python, C++, Java, and R.

I've been a teaching fellow and instructor for introductory courses in computer science and bioinformatics at Boston University, and have worked as a tutor with many computer programming students taking both introductory and advanced courses.

Computer Science

My undergraduate degree (B.Sc(Hon), 2001) is in Neuroscience and Computer Science (double major) at the University of Toronto, and have taken graduate courses in machine learning and computer architecture, and I have over a decade of professional experience in scientific programming and web development (with Python, C/C+, and Java, primarily).

As a graduate student at Boston University (in Bioinformatics / Computational Biology) I've worked as a teaching fellow for Introduction to Computer Science (CS111) and Intro to Internet Technologies and Web Programming (CS103), as well as the co-instructor for the computational lab section of Intro to Statistics (MA213). Through these classes, I've acquired experience teaching computer science and programming to both CS majors and non-majors.

Genetics

I have a PhD in bioinformatics and computational biology.

I've worked extensively in research both in human genetics, specifically on chromosomal structural variation in neurodevelopmental disorders and in analysis of gene expression in mouse models of neurodegenerative disease. My publications and work samples are available upon request.

I've taught intro biology/genetics at the high school (AP biology) level, as well as in other biology courses (human physiology).

Python

I have an undergraduate degree in computer science and have worked in and taught Python programming for over 8 years. I have experience applying Python to web development (e.g. CherryPy, Flask), basic intro CS and programming, databases, and scientific / biological data analysis.

I have particular expertise in using Python for data analysis and working with the PyData Stack including Pandas, NumPy, StatsModels, Matplotlib, and networkx, and in constructing statistical graphics and interactive visualizations.

Statistics

I have taught introductory statistics classes as an adjunct instructor at Lesley University (CMATH2142) and Boston University (MA213). I've worked both with science / math majors and students from other disciplines with less math background.

These courses have included work with statistical software including R/RStudio and JMP (and I have a passing acquaintance with many other stats / data analysis packages such as Tableau, SPSS, and SAS).

My current research is primarily in development of statistical methods and software for analysis of structured data, with applications to the molecular biology of neurodegenerative disease. I have a decade of experience doing analysis, statistics, and visualization of complex scientific data in industry and academia.

Great Tutor!

Adrian is an excellent tutor for computer science. He helped me a lot with my final database project and he really knows his stuff! He is very patient and excellent at explaining and making sure I understood. He also responds quick which is helpful when in a bind! Thanks so much Adrian!
