We are Cal Poly computer science faculty, joined by alumni and faculty from various disciplines who want to share with you our excitement about computing is everywhere!
Computer Science Faculty Organizers:
Dr. John Clements
John Clements is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at California Polytechnic State University. He received his B.S. degree from Princeton University and his Ph.D. from Northeastern University. He’s done all sorts of cool stuff with DrRacket and was on the Teach Scheme, Reach Java team. He also co-led the development of WebIDE, a tool for helping beginning programmers learn to program.
Dr. Michael Haungs
Michael Haungs is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at California Polytechnic State University. He received his B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from the University of California, Berkeley, his M.S. degree in Computer Science from Clemson University, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Davis.
Dr. David Janzen
David Janzen is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at California Polytechnic State University. He earned his B.S. in math and computer science at Tabor College, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Kansas. He primarily teaches software engineering and mobile (Android) courses. His research has focused on test-driven development and WebIDE, a tool for helping beginning programmers learn to program. He recently published his first web/video course “Java Essentials for Android”, and co-founded Steadfast Innovation, creators of Papyrus, a note-taking app for Android tablets.
Dr. Zoë Wood
Zoë Wood is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at California Polytechnic State University. Dr. Wood obtained her Ph.D. from Caltech where she studied geometric modeling. She researches and teaches in the field of computer graphics with a specific focus on geometric modeling (from acquired data), real-time computer graphics applications, scientific visualization and rendering. This will be Dr. Wood’s second year participating in CS4HS. She has participated in numerous outreach activities including teaching for EPIC and speaking at elementary and high schools about computing.
