My current research interests are collaborative problem-solving environments, and technology for educational assessment including the use of pattern-recognition methods in teaching of written language on tablets.

My teaching interests include image processing, visual languages, artificial intelligence, data structures and algorithms. As image processing plays a bigger role in our lives, there are new ways to teach and learn image processing. In my forthcoming text, An Interdisciplinary Introduction to Image Processing: Pixels, Numbers, and Programs (MIT Press, May 2012), I consider the subject not only from a computing perspective, but also as a creative and mathematical subject.
