Alexander Hartemink

Alexander F. Hehmeyer Associate Professor of Computer Science (2009 - 2014)

Alexander Hartemink works at the interface of computer science, biology, and statistics, specializing in the relatively new field of computational biology. His research focuses especially on applications of statistical machine learning to understanding the way in which transcription and replication are coordinately enacted on a eukaryotic genome. A former Duke undergraduate, Professor Hartemink has been a deeply committed teacher since returning to his alma mater, as reflected in his being named the recipient of the David and Janet Vaughn Brooks Distinguished Teaching Award in 2007.
