What’s the most rewarding academic experience you’ve had at UNF in or out of the classroom?
As a professor, my most rewarding academic experiences come from my students’ achievements. Two examples include when one of my master’s advisees was admitted to a Ph.D. program with full scholarship, and another got a job offer from Amazon because of their research experience with me.
Do you have a favorite spot on campus?
The iMobile3 lab in the School of Computing building is my favorite spot. This is where I teach the Development of Gaming and Mobile Apps, and where I’ve seen amazing and creative apps made by computing students.
What is your personal philosophy?
Never stop learning
If you could witness any historical event, what would it be?
When Marie Curie won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1903. She is the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and she won again in 1911, that time in Chemistry. The world needs science, and science needs more women.
If the world were silent for 20 seconds and all ears were turned to you, what would you say?
Be nice to each other. Treat individuals as persons without labels.
