My (ex) band
I am a lecturer in the Math and Computer Science Department at Santa Clara University. In Fall 2012, I will be teaching CS10: Introduction to computer Science, and Math 31: Business Calculus II.
I spent the 2011-2012 school year as a post-doctoral researcher at the Silicon Valley campus of Carnegie Mellon University, and a lecturer in the Computer Science department at San Jose State University. As a post-doc, I worked on finding ways that we could use technology to help with training for civilian search and rescue first responders, and this project is ongoing.
In June 2011 I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Washington. My thesis work focused on educational technology for developing regions. In particular, I investigated techniques and technologies for providing support to the facilitators of facilitated video deployments. Facilitated video is a methodology whereby classes are recorded and these recordings are then shown to a group of students by a semi-skilled facilitator. I have developed a system that provides the facilitator with targeted information during the video shows. Audio codes are embedded in the video and an application on an Android device uses digital signal processing techniques to decode them and present information to the user. I also piloted this system in rural India with Digital Green.
During an internship at Microsoft Research India I tried several interventions with Digital Green to increase interactivity in their video sessions.
I have also worked on the Classroom Presenter project since 2006. Classroom Presenter is a Tablet PC-based classroom interaction system, and while I have worked on the code-base, my primary contributions to this project focus on effective pedagogy for using Classroom Presenter.
