My teaching focuses on how organizations use computing technologies such as databases and enterprise systems. Students in my classes and on my MQP teams learn to design computing applications that address organizational needs. My research complements my teaching. For example, I am working with healthcare organizations using electronic health records systems to improve healthcare delivery. Read more...
- Assistant Professor, School of Business
I love the art of teaching because it provides an opportunity to give back from all that I've received. I enjoy the back-and-forth interplay with students, with alternative questions and answers, because these connections foster learning on both sides. One of my goals is to make the course content relevant through proper integration of technology as well as aspects of my research. Read more...
