Senior Lecturer

Bob received the prestigious 2007 Kroepsch-Maurice Teaching Award, having joined the Computer Science faculty in 1991 after completing his Master of Science degree at Clarkson University.

Bob focuses on a series of web technology courses that get students to think of the web not as a series of web pages, but rather as a user interface for computer programs. Students' projects range from blogs, hotel management and social networking sites to volunteer opportunities (having been a mentor for seven years, Bob likes to point students in this direction).

In addition, Bob has written a textbook on Microsoft Office suite that students have found useful not just for the course but, based on the emails Bob receives, for years to come. One former student emailed, "I still apply many of your lessons today — still have your old textbook in my office — do you have a new one?" The reply — it's online, of course!
