Teaching and research interests include Web-based communication, security, access, and application development - specifically employing emerging technologies. I have been part of numerous research grants, including awards by the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), NYS Department of Health, and Rochester General Hospital.

Curricularly, I oversee all Web related curriculum, the Minor in Web Development for Computing Majors and am very interested in Web Sciences.

Currently Teaching

3 Credits
This course will explore the analysis, design, development, and implementation of client-side programming in the context of Internet technologies, mobile devices, Web-based client systems and desktop applications. Students will learn to design and build usable and effective interactive systems, clients, and interfaces. Key features addressed will include browser and platform compatibility, object reusability, bandwidth and communications issues, development environments, privacy and security, and related technologies and APIs. Programming is required.
3 Credits
This course builds on the basics of web page development that are presented in Web and Mobile I and extends that knowledge to focus on theories, issues, and technologies related to the design and development of web sites. An overview of web design concepts, including usability, accessibility, information architecture, and graphic design in the context of the web will be covered. Introduction to web site technologies, including HTTP, web client and server programming, and dynamic page generation from a database also will be explored. Development exercises are required.
3 Credits
When building larger-scale web applications, there are a myriad of concerns that range from technology, security, framework, and architecture selection to runtime performance optimization. This course focuses on the development of secure integrated web applications that consume information served from one or many sources. Trends in web application development are identified and assessed. Programming projects are required.
3 Credits
This course is an introductory scripting course. Students will learn to design software solutions using the procedural approach, to implement software solutions using a contemporary programming language, and to test these software solutions. Topics include problem definitions, designing solutions, implementing solutions using a contemporary programming language, implementing a contemporary library/framework, and testing software solutions. Programming projects will be required.
3 Credits
The student will work independently, under the supervision of one or more faculty advisers, on a topic of mutual interest that is beyond the depth of or not covered in other courses.
