I joined the computer science department at Millersville University full-time in the Fall of 2003 after teaching several classes as an adjunct instructor. Before coming to Millersville, I worked in the computer industry at several companies including MapQuest (now owned by AOL), AMP (now part of Tyco), and Primavera Software (still themselves, as far as I know).
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Delaware in January 2006, and my M.S. in computer science (also from University of Delaware) in 1993. I completed my undergraduate work in computer science at Shippensburg University in 1991.
Natural language understanding, user modeling, cognitive modeling, and artificial intelligence in general. For more on my current research interests, see the Publications section of my website.
Please check out the happenings at the Software Productization Center! This is a cross-disciplinary effort between computer science, art/design, and business/marketing. Our goal is to help regional software entrepreneurs launch their products.
One of my other projects is the collaborative project with the University of Delaware on Exploiting Information Graphics in Digital Libraries. The aim of this project is to investigate a method for retrieving information graphics (such as bar charts, line graphs and grouped bar charts) from a digital library in response to user queries.
