Teaching

In addition to research, I am also interested in education and mentorship. I have had experience teaching various courses in a wide variety of settings and thoroughly enjoyed interacting with students in all of them.

As a faculty member in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, I am the instructor for both the graduate and undergraduate versions of Human-Computer Interaction: IST 449 and IST 649. If you’re interested in learning more about designing interactive systems that take into account people’s everyday practices, I urge you to take my courses! Feel free to send me an e-mail if you want to know more.

In the ICS department at UH Manoa, I served as a co-instructor for Seminar in Software (a graduate level course) as well as for both the undergraduate and graduate versions of HCI. I was also an unofficial co-advisor for two Ph.D. candidates, Misa Maruyama and Sara Douglas, as well as two undergraduates, Heather Faucett and William Gaul, who are all members of the HICHI lab. What a pleasure it was to have worked with all of them!

During my tenure at the University of California, Irvine, I was a Teaching Assistant (TA) for a variety of courses in the School of Information and Computer Sciences. The courses are listed below:

Fall 2007: INF 125/CS 113 Computer Game Development

Summer 2007: INF 111/CSE 121 – Software Engineering Tools and Methods

Spring 2006: ICS 131 – Social Analysis of Computerization

Winter 2006: ICS 104 – Human Computer Interaction (HCI)

Fall 2005: ICS 121 – Software Engineering Tools and Methods
