I am an Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor with the Department of Computer Science. I serve as the Director of Undergraduate Programs for the department. I am a three time graduate of the department, and received my Ph.D. in August of 2009 as part of the RealSearch Group. I received the NC State University Outstanding Teacher Award and the Alumni Association Outstanding Teacher Award as a representative of the College of Engineering in Spring 2015. I am a member of the Academy of Outstanding Teachers at NC State. As a graduate student, I was a three-time recipient of the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship.

My research interests are in the science of software as applied to computing education research (SOS-CER) - specifically software engineering skill transfer and automated feedback.
