Bhaskar DasGupta

Welcome to the home page of Bhaskar DasGupta

I am a Professor in the Computer Science department at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I am also an adjunct faculty at the Bioengineering department in UIC. My research interests span several areas such as Theoretical Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics/Algorithms, Computational Biology, Computational Geometry and Computational Finance. I received the NSF CAREER award in 2004 and the UIC College of Engineering Teaching Award in 2012. I thankfully acknowledge generous support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for my research activities.

During Fall 2016, I am teaching CS 151 (Mathematical Foundations of Computing, M W F 1:00--1:50 PM, 187 students) and CS 401 (Computer Algorithms I, M W F 2:00--2:50 PM, 60 students)
