My current research is in the areas of Computation Thinking and Agile Software Development in Education.

Recently, I have collaborated with faculty from around the State University of New York on a project to explore and develop a semi-standardized and accessible introduction to computer science course that can potentially be adopted by multiple SUNY campuses. This research was funded by a 2014 SUNY IITG grant.

I developed a simulated operating system named Simple OS. Simple OS is designed to make it easier for students to learn operating system concepts. Students can write individual pieces of the operating system as opposed to trying to write the whole OS. The simulated OS allows students to create programs in a pseudo-assembler type language and execute them. When the pseudo-assembler programs are run students can view the internal operating systems structures (process queues and process control blocks) as well as the contents of the simulated hardware (registers and RAM).

I have also worked on a collaboration with the Center for Applied Mathematics (CAMS) and Brookhaven National Labrotories (BNL) on a program that was designed to have undergraduate students perform research in the area of Signal Analysis.

My dissertation research was in the field of computational linguistics. It involved writing computer simulations for first language acquisition in children.
