Research

I am an Associate Professor in Computer Science at Gonzaga University. Previously, I was a Clinical Assistant Professor at WSU, a PhD student in the WSU Center for Advanced Studies in Adaptive Systems (CASAS) lab, and a National Science Foundation IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) Fellow in the Integrative Training Program in Health-Assistive Smart Environments at Washington State University. My research interests include wearable computing, machine learning, technology applications for healthcare, and computer science education. Visit my Projects Page to find out more about what I am working on.
