Recent News:

  • After many years of absence, CS 4010 (Introduction to Computer Law) is returning to the CS course schedule. I will be co-teaching it this Fall (2020). Here's a brief synopsis from our syllabus:
    An understanding of certain aspects of the law can help computer scientists contribute more to their enterprise. We will learn about the various types of law that computer scientists may encounter. Students will be exposed to the US legal system, intellectual property, licensing and contracts, and data security and privacy. Students will work in small teams to analyze third-party commercial-grade code as a technical expert (witness) might do to support a litigation. At the end of the course students should be aware of basic legal issues in the computer field and understand when they need advice from a lawyer.
  • Upcoming conference paper: E. Anderson, C.F. Lewallen, B. Cola, R. Saxena, R. Sivakumar, K. Ramachandran, J. Harris, O. Omojokun, R.P. Vito, D.E. Moeller, C.R. Forest, Startup company self-employment and entrepreneurial confidence through Capstone Design, To appear: Proceedings of the Capstone Design Conference 2020, Dallas, TX, Jun 1-3, 2020
  • CS-4853-X, the entrepreneurial and multidisciplinary focused version of Capstone Design that I've been co-teaching for the past few semesters, is now a permanent course and labeled as CS 4883-X.
  • In the Fall of 2019, the College of Computing launched the first ever online section of CS 1331 (Intro to Object-Oriented Programming) using content I developed over several months of writing and filming. Feedback and contributions were also provided by past and current TAs. The delivery primarily consists of video-based slides, demos, and skits that are organized on Canvas. Textual explanations and periodic knowledge checks are also included. You'll find the online section listed as the "O" section on OSCAR. I'll also be teaching the 2020 "SOUP" (Summer Online Undergraduate Program) section using the same content. If you're wondering whether to choose any of these online options to fulfill your 1331 requirement, feel free to reach out to me to discuss details.

As my past courses and research show, I have a wide range of interests -- spanning mobile computing, networking, devices, user-interfaces, software development, entrepreneurship, ethical/legal (especially intellectual property based) issues in technology, recommendation systems, and educational technology (especially in the context of online courses). I'm always happy to have discussions in these areas (and more), so feel free to reach out to me using the email address above.

Once upon a time (circa 2006), I was a post-doc at the Laboratory for Interactive Artificial Intelligence. Here's my former page
