I am an Associate Professor in Computer Science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), MA, USA. I am also Director of the Cybersecurity Program and an Adjunct Research Faculty in the Department of Computer Science at Brown University.
Research Interests: I’m interested in various facets of how people learn and use formal systems. Over the years, I’ve increasingly emphasized the human and learning components. Currently, my main projects are Bootstrap: teaching kids to program videogames as a way to reinforce algebra, developing effective error-messages for novice programmers in WeScheme and DrRacket, and how people learn programming through Pyret (a new programming language) and CaptainTeach (a new programming environment with built-in peer-reviewing and support for teaching test-early development).
