We are looking to hire two graduate students to TA the Intro Disability Studies course this fall. The deadline to apply is August 29th.
From 1994 to 2005, as part of the DO-IT Project, I held a one week summer workshop for disabled high school students encouraging them to pursue college programs and careers in science, mathematics, and engineering. In 2006 I organized the Vertical Mentoring Workshop for the Blind in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. I have also organized the Summer Academy for Advancing Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Computing in 2007-2010. I am a recipient of the 2004 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM), a recipient of the 2008 Computing Research Association's A. Nico Habermann Award, and a winner of a 2008 Purpose Prize. I received the Outstanding Service Award winner at the University of Washington in 2009. I am a member of the Board of Trustees of Gallaudet University. I can often be found holding office hours at the driving range while trying to perfect my golf swing. I am fluent in American Sign Language and computer science theories.
