Passion for teaching & disseminating knowledge


Undergraduate courses


Data Structures & Algorithms, NYU Abu Dhabi

Taught in Fall 2020, Fall 2021, Fall 2022

This course presents an overview of fundamental data structures, which are commonplace in programming, as well as associated basic algorithms. Complexity analysis, linked lists, stacks, queues, trees, hashing, sorting, and basic graphs algorithms are covered. Core topics such as Floyd's algorithm, minimum spanning tree algorithms, and branch and bound techniques are also covered. Practical lab exercises complement the lectures. The students further specialize and consolidate their knowledge through lab projects to demonstrate the operation and applications of various data structures.
