A significant challenge to maintaining security within an organization is the training of a non-technical workforce to respond appropriately to cybersecurity threats. I have worked to create an online environment that utilizes experiential learning and gamification to give non-technical workers an increased exposure to issues in cybersecurity. Specifically, an interface was developed that uses simulations of cybersecurity threats to provide concrete experiences rather than descriptions. While moving through the simulation, the user can attempt multiple actions and is provided with an “awareness” measure. For each, the system provides continuous feedback to allow active experimentation. After each threat has been exposed, the environment provides a narrative of the user’s actions with suggested improvements to allow for reflective observation. Gamification encourages users to advance through the edcation process by achieving awards as illustrated below:

Partnering with 23&Me, a recursive, stochastic fractal was used to generate images of trees that are based on the DNA subsequences taken from the test results from 23&Me. The resulting tree is entirely unique to the individual's DNA.

This work describes the use and benefits of the testdriven development paradigm in parallel application development. A brief background on test-driven development for traditional applications, techniques for parallel development, and the xUnit framework is given. This work then gives direction for using the given technologies for the development of parallel applications using the test-driven development process by mapping the functions of a parallel language to the functions of the testing framework as illustrated by a programming assignment given to college sophomores.

Below will be a list of laguages and tools that I would recommend learning.
This section is still incomplete. This will be the "little something extra" to my faculty page. I plan to post things that I find interesting here.
