My name is Aaron Eisenberg. I was born in Texas, but moved to Kentucky when I was 4 years old, so Richmond, Kentucky is where I call home. I started at EKU after graduating high school. During high school I took general chemistry for duel credit as well as taught myself HTML, CSS, PHP, and MySQL. Because of these two experiences I got excited about both chemistry and computer science as possible majors. Once I started college I chose to study Computer Science: Bioinformatics and soon after added a second major in Biochemistry since I had interests in both fields. Other hobbies that I have include reading and enjoying the outdoors.
About the project:
My project for this semester is exploring the current usage of computer programs that utilize computer simulation in the scientific world today, with particular emphasis on the part that these programs play in the bioinformatics field. Once finding what programs are in use and what role they play in research and development of compounds, my goal is to understand how they work, what data structures and algorithms are utilized, and what new research is being done to either make the current way computer simulation in scientific fields is done better or develop new ways to utilized computer simulation in different scientific fields. This project in an ongoing project and I am excited to see where it leads.
