meI’m an Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University.  Recently, I was awarded the 2016 Robert B. Pond, Sr. Excellence in Teaching Award.  Prior to joining JHU in July 2014, I was an Associate Professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at McDaniel College.  I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
