Research and Projects

I remain active in a number of different projects in a variety of different areas spanning the last 20 years. If you are looking for a traditional faculty member’s project list, you are unlikely to find it here as it does not reflect the duality of my life experience as a technology executive and faculty member. Projects have evolved over time and Publications range from plenary presentations to journal papers as detailed below.

Security and Privacy 60 Empower Greatness in Others 40
Student Success 32 Adaptive Technologies and User Models 25
Innovation 22 High Speed Networks 15
Data-Driven Decision making 11 Shared Services 11
Learning Management Systems 7 Digital Citizens 4

Crowd sourcing Business Value 2 Serious Games 1

Project Name: Security and Privacy
Project Description:  I have been active in computer security and privacy for more than 20 years with my formal degrees in this field. Perhaps the most notable research was regarding adaptive agent-based incident response and active anti-phishing training. I continue to teach on the topic at both Georgia State and UAB at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Project Name: Student Success
Project Description: Students and their success should be at the center of conversations in academia. I am surprised and often dismayed how often the center of gravity becomes auxiliary sales, faculty pursuit of external endeavors, or other less important topics. Just as there is a revolution occurring in technology, there is a revolution in academia and half of the current colleges and universities are not going to survive that revolution because they are unwilling to transform how we educate and inspire the next generation of leaders in America and the world.

Project Name: Adaptive Technologies and User Models
Project Description: I am unique. You are unique. Why should my interface to learning or truly anything be standard? As we enter the era of algorithms, the ability to build robust and accurate user models and adapt content, assessment, and other means of engagement will become increasingly important. I did a lot of research in this area in the 1990s and that research remains some of my most cited material.

Serious Games
Project Description: One might argue that a couple of publications over 20 years does not make a project but candidly it is my website and this was a seriously cool project. We took the Doom gaming engine and modified it to give quizzes. If the students completed more than 80 questions, they could progress to the final level and find an exact replica of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at West Point. It was one of the toughest levels ever created in DOOM. It was also a profoundly positive in terms of the impact on the class inside and outside the classroom.
