Dr. Gideon Gogovi, a computational and data scientist, conducts research at the intersection of bioinformatics, computational biology, interpretable machine learning, and data science. His research focuses on investigating the structural dynamics of viral proteins using modeling and simulation techniques, as well as employing explainable AI methods. Through molecular dynamics simulations, Dr. Gogovi analyzes and characterizes the viral structural proteins, while also utilizing interpretable machine learning and explainable AI approaches to tackle various problems. Additionally, he has a keen interest in Compartmental models in epidemiology and complex data visualization using interactive dashboards. He comes to Lehigh from the University of Houston – Downtown where he served as an Assistant Professor of Data Science in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. He received his PhD in Computational Sciences and Informatics from George Mason University, an MS in Mathematics from West Virginia University, an MPhil in Applied Mathematics from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, and a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Cape Coast.
