Dr. Sandino Vargas-Pérez


Hello everyone! I'm very exited to meet all of you this quarter! I have a passion for High-Performance Computing, Parallel and Distributed Algorithms, Computational Genomics, Data Structures and Compression. I like spending my free time gardening, practicing Judo, reading science fiction, high fantasy, magical realism, and fiction.

COMP 210 - Data Structures, Fall 2018

A new quarter begins and new knowledge awaits! Welcome to Data Structures (COMP 210). This is a core class for all computer scientists where you learn fundamental concepts to help you thrive in the world of computers. The class will be really early in the morning, so we need to be on time and ready to work.

By the end of the quarter you should have learned the basic data structures used in Computer Science, their properties, functionalities, and how to measure their effectiveness (what we will call time and space complexity). You will also learn the what, why, and how of sorting, searching, recursion, and some other wildly used techniques in CS. Use the syllabus to learn more about the class or the menu bar in the top to explore the course content.

We have an awesome group of TAs at the collaboration center where you can go and ask any questions you have. Also, my office hours are available to you. Check my weekly schedule and please stop by: we can talk about the things you don't understand, the things you do, and other related topics.

One last thing, diversity and inclusion in Science are critical for the achievement of excellency. For this reason our classroom will be a space in which everyone can enrich and contribute to each other's learning experiences.


Wednesdays, 3:45 PM to 4:15 PM

The Math/CS department hosts a weekly tea time from 3:45 to 4:15 on Wednesdays. Please drop by the Common Area just outside the department office suite for some conversation and munchies.
