About Me

I am an Associate Clinical Professor of Information Systems and the Associate Department Chair in the Department of Decision, Operations & Information Technologies at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland, College Park. I also serve as the Associate Academic Director of the MS Information Systems and the co-director of the Smith Analytics Consortium.

With almost 20 years of teaching experience, I am passionate about teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in problem-solving, programming, analytics, databases, Web application development, and systems development lifecycle. I have taught at the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University, School of Technology and Innovation at Marymount University, and School of Cybersecurity and Information Technology at University of Maryland, Global Campus.

Aside from my academic experience, I have over 25 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.
