Research Interests

My research interests are primarily in computer science education, focusing on how new and multidisciplinary students can more efficiently learn fundamental concepts. In a modern office environment, simple scripting can be a huge asset, even for those without a computer science background or programming role in their company. As such, I am interested in figuring out how best to provide this demographic with the necessary computing tools and experiences.
