Andrew DannerAssociate ProfessorComputer Science Swarthmore College Swarthmore, PA 19081 Science Center 247 |
I'm an associate professor in computer science at Swarthmore College. I am interested in researching ways to process very large geometric data sets that often arise in geographic information systems (GIS). I am originally from Southwestern Pennsylvania, so I say "pop", not "soda".
