About Me

I teach in the undergraduate Computer Science program.

I joined the faculty of New College in the fall of 2013, and I defined the requirements for the Computer Science Area of Concentration (AOC, or major) that academic year. As of 2022 the department has four regular faculty and about 40 students in the AOC.

In the spring of 2014 I helped begin planning the structure and curriculum of the New College Data Science master’s program. The program began in January, 2016, and the first cohort of seven students graduated in May, 2017. I taught in the program through 2021.

My recent research has been in music information retrieval, discrete structures and mixing rates of Markov chains, and Internet measurement.

I organized LADS 2018, which took place at New College January 10-11, 2018.
