Have you seen this video? Why don't more schools offer Computer Science classes?

I recently co-advised a team of Graphic Design and Computer Science students as they created a video game commemorating the 150th Lehigh/Lafayette Football Game. You can play it here.


I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department, P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science, Lehigh University. I am also associated with the Computer Engineering program.

In addition to holding a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Rochester, I also hold an MBA from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. I completed my undergraduate studies in Computer Science at West Point, and served in the Air Force for 5 years, reaching the rank of Captain.

Please use the menu at the top of this page to learn more about my research in parallel and concurrent systems, the courses I teach, and the service and outreach activities that my students and I perform.
