Welcome to my web page! I’m a researcher in Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence in Design. My major research area is in Design Rationale – methods for capturing and using the reasons behind decisions made when designing software or any other artifact.
I received my PhD from WPI in 2005. My undergraduate work was performed at Michigan Technological University. Prior to joining Wesleyan, I spent nine years as an Assistant and Associate Professor at Miami University in Oxford Ohio and before that, I worked for over 20 years as a software engineer and AI researcher.
