Hello! I am an Associate Professor at Hendrix College. I earned my Ph. D. in Computer Science at University of Wisconsin - Madison in August 2007, and taught at Centenary College of Louisiana from 2007 - 2014. I graduated from Kenyon College in May 1998 with a B.A. in Mathematics and Philosophy, and received my MS CS from UW-Madison in May 2000.

My research interests include programming for the Android Operating System, Agent-Based Modeling, Combinatorial Game Theory, General Game Playing, and Computer Science Education.

My research at UW concentrated in Artificial Intelligence, and I worked in the Machine Learning Research Group under Professor Jude Shavlik on Biomedical Information Extraction using Inductive Logic Programming, where I was supported through a training fellowship from the Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine grant.

Say hello to my wife, Laura! We married fourteen years ago on July 5, 2003.
