i am a lecturer in the department of electrical engineering and computer science at
MIT. my main interests lie in teaching math, science, engineering, and computer
programming, with an emphasis on design and problem solving; in improving the
way we teach these subjects; and in developing new means of leveraging modern
technologies to improve face-time with students.
my primary involvement has been with the
development and instruction of 6.01 (an introduction to engineering from the
perspective of EE and CS, and one of the largest classes at the Institute).
i am also involved with academic advising, and i occasionally supervise
m.eng or urop projects, typically related to educational technologies.
in spring 2016, i will be co-lecturer for 6.01, along with Eric Grimson.
i have been involved with development and instruction of the following
courses at MIT:
- 6.01 Intro to EECS I:
- Lecturer: F13, S14, F14, F15, S16
- Lab Instructor: F12, S13, S15
- Instructor (G): S12
- Teaching Assistant: S11, F11
- Lab Assistant: S09, F09, S10, F10
- 6.02 Digital Communication
- Course Development ("Lab Czar"): F12
- 6.003 Signals and Systems:
- Course Assistant (Software Development): F11
in spring 2012, i was awarded the Carlton E. Tucker Award for Excellence in Teaching for my work with 6.01.
in spring 2015, i was awarded the MIT HKN/EECS Best Instructor Award for 2014-2015.
current m.eng students:
former m.eng students:
- Daniel Martelly (B.Sc 2014)
- Jeremy Kaplan (B.Sc 2015)
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 teaches math at Hononegah
High School in Rockton, IL, where he also coaches track and field.
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 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 playing video games.
