Wendy D. Fisher

Teaching Associate Professor
Department of Computer Science

ABOUT

I am a Teaching Associate Professor and a proud alumni of Mines! My research was focused in applied machine learning using Geophysical data. The understating and use of various data structures to efficiently store and work with the massive amounts of data we collected was critical. I am dedicated to taking this journey with you and supporting you as you expand your computer science knowledge.
