"Memo," as he likes to be called, was born and raised in Austin, Texas. As a primary instructor for I101 Introduction to Informatics Dr. Dalkilic meets many of Informatics' newest students. He attended Indiana University and graduated with a degree in chemistry.
He continued at Indiana University's School of Medicine, beginning work on an M.D./Ph.D. in biochemistry, but discovered after a couple of years that his interests were better served in computer science. He graduated from Indiana University with a Ph.D. in computer science in June 2000. His primary research interest includes data mining - searching for hidden information in large amounts of data and has begun working in bioinformatics. He has authored several articles and a book chapter. He has recently been awarded an NSF grant. He consults part-time, is an avid reader and pianist, and enjoys a tussle with his 140 lb. Alaskan malamute, Kan.
