James Fairbanks, Ph.D.

James Fairbanks, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Dr. Fairbanks’s research focuses on programming languages; concurrency, parallelism and high-performance computing; and database, data science and informatics. His work focuses on using programming language theory and algebraic techniques for designing and developing large scale software for technical computing problems. Dr. Fairbanks earned his Ph.D. in Computational Science and Engineering in 2016 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Before coming to UF, he worked at the Georgia Tech Research Institute on data analysis and high-performance computing. See Dr. Fairbanks’s profile.


Kiley Graim, Ph.D.

Kiley Graim, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Dr. Graim’s research focuses on bioinformatics. Her other research interests include computational biology; database, data science and informatics; and machine learning. She earned her Ph.D. in Biomolecular Engineering in 2016 from the University of California Santa Cruz. Dr. Graim’s research operates at the confluence of life science research and computer science. Her lab develops machine learning models that integrate diverse large-scale genomics data to address key questions in human health and disease. Her overarching goal is to map the mechanisms of human diseases and to enable development of personalized therapies. See Dr. Graim’s profile.


Sara Rampazzi, Ph.D.

Sara Rampazzi, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Dr. Rampazzi’s research focuses on investigating security risks and developing hardware and software defense strategies against hardware-based and physics-based attacks. Her research areas include cyber-physical systems security, embedded-systems design, modeling, and simulation with applications in health care, automotive, and the Internet of Things. Dr. Rampazzi earned her Ph.D. in electronics, computer science and electrical engineering in 2014 from the University of Pavia. Before coming to UF, she was a research investigator in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. See Dr. Rampazzi’s profile.
