Bio and Research Information

I am an alum of the DAPP program and transferred from Wilbur Wright Community College to DePaul University in Fall 2017. I graduated with my bachelors in Computer Science from DePaul in March 2019 and graduated with my masters in Computer Science from DePaul in June 2020. I am an Adjunct Instructor at DePaul University and Computer Systems Institute, a Computer Science Learning Designer and Swift Instructional Mentor for the Center for Excellence in Computer Science, and the Principal Investigator for a HCI research group at DePaul University led by Dr. Craig Miller. I am very familiar with the structure of DePaul and aim to help all students succeed in their Computer Science education.

Research Area

Computer Science Education, Collaborative Technologies, Human Computer Interaction

Specific Research Area

My research interests are in collaborative technology in the classroom to support Computer Science learning, the development and implementation of notional machines, and ways to reduce the Imposter Phenomena in novice Computer Science students. My goal is to increase the retention rate for studying Computer Science at all education levels, reduce the exclusivity and barriers present to practicing Computer Science, and make the field more accessible to all populations.
