basics

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.

teaching

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:

in spring 2012, i was awarded the Carlton E. Tucker Award for Excellence in Teaching for my work with 6.01.

personal

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, reading, and otherwise generally chilling. i am a fan of the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa REDBLACKS of the Canadian Football League.
