TEACHING INTERESTS

Topics in advanced programming such as functional programming and meta-heuristic algorithms.

I'm also interested in pedagogical strategies and have become convinced that the best way to teach is to ask students to explain in person the material for which they are responsible. This is very labor intensive, but I have found no effective substitute.


RESEARCH

Applying computational thinking to problems in philosophy.
