Professional academic life story

I've been working here at UNCA since the Fall of 1990. My primary interests are embedded systems and computer networking. I teach courses in both the Engineering and Computer Science programs. As expected, most of the courses I teach are in introductory programming, but I also teach some special topics courses related to embedded systems.

I was an undergraduate at Duke University, with a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at MIT, where I worked with the dataflow computer architecture group.

Current courses

Previous courses

Since the Spring 1984 semester, I have keep almost all my course information, handouts, homeworks, and exams, on-line. These are available via my class handout index.

Non-academic life story

I have a son and daughter and am married to Rebecca Bruce, who is also a professor here at UNC Asheville.

I enjoy music and play the piano and ukele.
