A. Izaguirre is assistant professor of Computer Science and
Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He is also in
the executive committee of the Interdisciplinary Center for
the Study of Biocomplexity. He received a B.S. from Tecnologico
de Monterrey (ITESM) in 1992, and a Ph.D. in computer science
and a specialization in computational science in 1999. He
is particularly committed to undergraduate education and is
the recipient of the Outstanding
Teacher of the Year award for the College of Engineering
at the University of Notre Dame in 2005.
interests are on computational biology, philosophy of science,
epistemology, and bioethics. He is creating models that integrate
insights from physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and
computer science to understand fundamental biological processes,
such as embryonic development, interaction of proteins within
the cell, and atomic level interactions. He is particularly
interested in the ethical implications of this kind of multidisciplinary
research focused on biology, and on philosophical refutations
of the materialistic foundations of artificial intelligence.
His research is funded by the National Science Foundation.
