• I received a Master's of Science in Computer Science and Information Systems (MSCSIS) from UNCW in 2008 and taught MIS courses here for 5 years. In 2013, I enrolled at Clemson University in Clemson, SC and received my PhD in Information Systems in 2019. I rejoined UNCW as an Assistant Professor in 2020 from Ohio University where I was also an Assistant Professor for 2 years. In the past, I also ran my own web development firm in Wilmington where I created web sites and data-driven systems for local businesses across NC. I am proud to be a NC-native and am originally from Fayetteville, NC.
