Academic Service

This year I have been an active member of the CSS curriculum committee, faculty meetings and subcommittees (CSS curriculum evaluation, workload).
I led five computer programming teams to the 2015­16 ACM International Collegiate Programming Competition regional qualifiers.

I served on the program committee of two conferences this year: IEEE GEM and ALIFE.

I am the chair of the International Society of Artificial Life’s education subcommittee.
