Alum Spotlight: Computer Science and Bioinformatics Guru

anwar-1Anwar Husain ’18 was presented with Hood College’s Outstanding Student in Computer Science at last spring’s Graduate Degree Recipient Reception. Dr. Husain, who already has an M.D./Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Toxicology, graduated with an M.S. in computer science from Hood last May.

His interest and goals are to use his advanced work in computer science to complement his prior background, as he ventures towards a career in bioinformatics. Currently, he is a post-doctoral research fellow in bioinformatics at The Johns Hopkins University.

Anwar decided on the bioinformatics field as it melds together the areas of medicine and computer science, his previous background and his current degree. While at Hood, Anwar worked on developing an efficient machine learning-based model to best assess network intrusion data in predicting attack types.
