Gordon Anderson

I am a lecturer in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst. I teach several courses, serve on several committees, and participate in a number of research projects. My interest is in scalable educational software design and implementation, programming languages, software engineering, databases and data mining. I am also very interested in computer science education and curriculum development. I work with community colleges to facilitate student transfers to the UMass CS program.
