Hello World!

Hello, I'm Jaye.  I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, and the director of the BRAVE I.D.E.A.S. lab. My research explores various applications of computational methods to promote cultural diversity and societal inclusion.

During the current academic year, I serve as a Visiting Data Science Fellow with XSEDE Advanced Computing for Social Change.  I am working to establish a network of faculty, the ACSC Community Development Fellows Program.  This initiative is driving social innovation through academic and community-driven pedagogy through this partnership.
