Niagara University recently welcomed Dr. Taylan Sen, assistant professor of computer and information sciences, to the NU community. Dr. Sen "truly believe[s] that just as a rising tide raises all ships, education elevates not only students, but society as a whole. I am honored to be offered the chance to become part of the NU community [and] to advance students' knowledge and empower them to lead successful and honorable lives."
Dr. Sen received his bachelor’s degree in 1996 in electrical engineering from Cornell University. He worked as a software developer at Actel Corporation, Cadence Design Systems, and Harris Corporation from 1996 to 2005. He obtained a masters degree in biological engineering at Cornell University in 2005. Dr. Sen studied law at the University of Buffalo from 2005 to 2008, during which he completed a few internships, including internships at Erie County Medical Center, SmartPill Corporation, and Xerox Corporation. After he received his JD in 2008, he worked as an Intellectual Property Attorney at Phillips Lytle, LLP, a law firm in Buffalo, NY, until 2013. In 2013, he commenced his Ph.D. studies at the University of Rochester in computer science. Dr. Sen has collaborated with several researchers in multidisciplinary fields, including communication, medicine, and psychiatry.
Dr. Sen’s research aims to leverage techniques from artificial intelligence and computational modeling in order to understand and improve human behaviors. He models and captures the dynamics of human interactions using machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision. Dr. Sen has completed extensive research that encapsulates his research aims.
It is certainly a pleasure to have Dr. Sen as a part of our Niagara University community to share his wealth of knowledge and experience with our students.
