I oversee IT operations and IT staff of the department. I joined the computer science department as director in October 2013.
I was hired by the University of Maryland in 2002 as an IT coordinator for the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Physical Sciences (CMPS). In this role I worked closely with the Associate Dean and IT managers in the CMPS departments and research centers. I also worked for the campus Office of Information Techology where I led the tech team for the Canvas (ELMS) implementation. Other places I have worked include the National Agricultural Statistics Service and St. Mary's County MD Public Schools. My career in the IT field began 1989. I have held jobs as a Windows programmer, a UNIX (AIX) system administrator, and a database administrator. My degree is in mathematics.
