i am a lecturer in the department of electrical engineering and computer science at
MIT. my main involvement has been with the
development and instruction of 6.01.
my main interests lie in teaching engineering and computer programming,
with an emphasis on design and problem solving; and in developing new means
of leveraging modern technologies to improve face-time with students.
in the fall 2014 semester, i will be reprising my role as the lecturer
in charge of 6.01.
i have been involved with development and instruction of the following
courses at MIT:
- 6.01 Intro to EECS I:
S09-F10 (Lab Assistant), S11-F11 (Teaching Assistant), S12-S13 (Lab
Instructor), F13-F14 (Lecturer)
- 6.02 Digital Communication
Systems: F12 (Course Development: "Lab Czar")
- 6.003 Signals and Systems:
F11 (Course Assistant: Software Development)
in spring 2012, i was awarded the Carlton
E. Tucker Award for Excellence in Teaching for my work with 6.01.
i graduated with a b.sc in computer science and engineering from MIT in
2011, and with an m.eng in electrical engineering and computer science
(again from MIT) in 2012.
i grew up in rural Illinois (in the country near Princeton).
my father teaches mathematics at Logan
Junior High School, and my mother is a former math teacher (now
retired) and currently owns Anne's Antiques.
my elder brother also teaches math, at Hononegah
High School in Rockton, IL.
i now live in Lexington, MA with my trusty feline companion
Stronger, whom i adopted from
MRFRS in 2009.
i keep myself occupied in my free time by playing and writing music,
programming, and reading. i am a fan of the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa REDBLACKS of the Canadian Football League.
