Research Overview


Research Statement

I am currently in the process of revising my research statement to reflect my long-term goal to integrate open science, active open educational resources, and peer-based active learning in a way that facilitates effective, low-anxiety computer science education at scale so that as many students as possible can actively engage in discipline-specific activities while learning. I expect this revised statement to be posted in Spring 2020. Feel free to contact me if you’re interested in a collaboration.

Keywords: open educational resources, peer-based active learning, computing education

CCS Concepts: Social and Professional Topics → Computing Education; Computer Science Education

Research Group

We are an interdisciplinary group, primarily focused on how principles of open science can be combined with pedagogical approaches to facilitate better outcomes in computer science education and data science education. Collaboration and pair programming are highly encouraged.

I am always looking for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students with strong backgrounds or interests in:

  • open source, open educational resources
  • java, python, scala
  • data science, analytics, functional data analysis
  • open science, jupyter
  • interdisciplinary applications
  • pedagogy
