FacultyMark Guzdial (or here): Mark is a Professor in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. Mark is a member of the GVU Center, the Cognitive Science program, and the EduTech Institute. He received his Ph.D. in education and computer science (a joint degree) at the University of Michigan in 1993, where he developed Emile, an environment for high school science learners programming multimedia demonstrations and physics simulations. He is also the designer of MediaText, a multimedia composition environment used in elementary and high school classrooms. More recently his work focuses on the development of contextualized approaches to computing education—most notably, the Media Computation curriculum.
Ph.D. StudentsMiranda Parker: Miranda is a Human-Centered Computing Ph.D. student concentrating in LST, and joined the program in 2014. She completed her undergraduate studies in Computer Science at Harvey Mudd College. Her current research focuses on computer science education efforts in the K-12 setting, including issues of privilege and computer science.
Amber Solomon: Amber is a Human-Centered Computing Ph.D. student concentrating in LST, and joined the program in 2015. Before coming to Georgia Tech, Amber completed an MS in Computer Science with a specialization in Interactive Computing also from Clemson University. Her current research investigates the use of gestures in computer science.
Katie Cunningham: Katie is a Human-Centered Computing Ph.D. student concentrating in LST, and joined the program in 2016. Prior to this, she was the Computer Science Education Coordinator for California State University Monterey Bay for their CSin3 program. Her current research explores sketching computer science topics, and what can be learned from them about the student's understanding of the notional machine.
