What's Important to Me

Teaching (and CS Education)

Spring 2018 Teaching

  • CS 111 "Law" Program Design I, a special law and public policy-themed section team-taught by team-taught with Prof. Richard Warner, IIT Chicago-Kent Law School. (Also demonstrating a prototype new UIC Red course website, that is so bleeding edge it may not be up until the first or second day of classes; hence no link just yet.)

Selected Past Courses Taught

Computer Science Education: Model curricula, etc.

I was a coauthor of (i.e., member of the relevant joint ACM and IEEE-Computer Society task force for):

  • Computing Curricula 2001: Computer Science.
  • Computing Curricula 2004: Computer Engineering.
  • Computing Curricula 2005: The Overview Report.
  • CS2008 Curriculum Update. (2008 light revision of Computing Curricula 2001: Computer Science)
All those reports are available here.


Research interests:

  1. Computer security, especially privacy, legal, and policy issues.
  2. Application of computer science theory and algorithms to problems from artificial intelligence. Proud member of the UIC theory group. Currently especially focused on problems from knowledge representation. Previously especially focused on problems from machine learning ("computational learning theory").
  3. Computer Science Education.
