About Me

I am an associate professor in the School of Interactive Games and Media at the Rochester Institute of Technology.  I am an affiliate of the RIT MAGIC Center and for the 2018-2019 academic year, I will once again be serving as the Eugene H. Fram Faculty Fellow in Applied Critical Thinking.

My area of scholarship is computing education.  I am primarily interested in how we teach introductory programming to students, issues of diversity an representation in computing fields, and effectiveness of outreach.

I currently serve on the SIGCSE Board as Treasurer, am a Senior Member of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), am a member of the CSforALL research community, and am the higher ed co-chair of the AP Computer Science A Development Committee.
