Dr. Ali Khamesipuor – STC’s new Program Manager and Assistant Professor
I received my Ph.D. in Bioinformatics from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Southern Illinois University in August 2018. I was employed as the Director of R&D at HomeWAV, A Video Visitation Solution for Correctional Facilities, based in St Louis, Missouri. My focus at HomeWAV was on optimizing the available solutions for the company’s product development and maintenance. My academic research interests are three folds: Bioinformatics, Healthcare/Clinical Informatics, and Bridging Industry-Academia.
Radana: Ali, welcome to CityU and the School of Technology and Computing, we are absolutely delighted that you joined our dynamic team! Thank you for agreeing to be interviewed for the STC Thursday Byte. Let’s start off by telling us about your career path that brought you to where you are today.
During my Ph.D., I also taught multiple courses as a lecturer for the departments of Information Systems Technologies and Electronics System Technologies including, Server-Side Web Development, Mobile Programming, Client-Side Web Development, Advanced Java Programming, Imaging, and Information Systems in Healthcare and Introduction to Biomedical Instrumentation. Soon I realized my endless passion for teaching, especially in a non-traditional setup.
Radana: Thank you – you come with a wealth of experience which will greatly benefit our students and department. What is one thing you wish you had known when you began your career?

IBM announces the launching of the System 360 mainframe architecture, which included six compatible models complete with 40 peripherals. It was called the “360″ because IBM boasted that it can meet the needs of all types and sizes of customers. It cost IBM well over five billion dollars to develop, and to date, thought to be one of the riskiest business decisions. IBM proved skeptics wrong, in the first three months of the 360 release, IBM received US$1.2 billion in orders. The 360 family was the most successful IBM system of all time, generating over US$100 billion in revenue through the mid-1980s. The 360 architecture introduced several industry standards such as the 8-bit byte and binary, decimal and hexadecimal floating-point calculations. The IBM 360 transformed the computer industry!
