Who is Professor Kraemer?

Eileen Kraemer joined Clemson University as the C. Tycho Howle Director of the School of Computing in the summer of 2014. From 1998 to 2014 she was at the University of Georgia and served as an Associate Dean of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences (2011-2014) and as Professor and Department Head of Computer Science (2008-2011). Prior to her appointment at UGA, she was a faculty member in the Computer Science Department at Washington University in St. Louis. She earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, an M.S. in Computer Science from Polytechnic University (now the Polytechnic Institute of New York University), and a B.A. in Biology from Hofstra University. She currently divides her time between academic administration, teaching, and research in computer science education and human aspects of both software engineering and bioinformatics.

How Professor Kraemer's research is transforming health care

Eileen’s research focuses on the intersection of humans and technology, with two major thrusts: human aspects of software development (CS education and software engineering) and human aspects of bioinformatics (design of tools and user interfaces for bioinformatics). The work on human aspects of bioinformatics has focused on the effective design of user interfaces and tools for bioinformatics, with applications to EuPathDB , a web-based database covering the eukaryotic pathogens in the genera Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Leishmania, Neospora, Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Trichomonas and Trypanosoma.
