About Me

I am an Associate Clinical Professor and the Associate Chair in the Department of Decision, Operations & Information Technologies at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland. I also serve as the Associate Academic Director for the M.S. in Information Systems and the Co-Director of the Smith Analytics Consortium. I am passionate about teaching undergraduate and graduate courses related to programming, databases, web application development, systems development lifecycle, and analytics. I joined the Smith School from the Volgenau School of Engineering, George Mason University, where I taught problem-solving/programming and database management courses. Additionally, I have also taught in the School of Technology and Innovation, Marymount University and the School of Cybersecurity and Information Technnology, University of Maryland, Global Campus.

Aside from my academic experience, I have completed over 20 years of professional experience at for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. My interests are primarily in the design, development, and implementation of information systems to solve business problems; application of systems development methods; and technology acceptance and user adoption within organizations.

I believe a combination of education and industry certifications is key to securing and advancing one's career. I hold a PhD in Information Systems from Nova Southeastern University having completed a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from The Catholic University of America and Master of Science in Electronic Commerce from University of Maryland, Global Campus. I also hold a Project Management Professional (PMP) credential from the Project Management Institute.
