Raspberry Pi

I study the open standards and open-source technologies that support web development. My professional work is invested in securing the web’s future as a more humane open platform. To that end, I research, practice, and promote ethical, iterative web development techniques that help make the web and its content universally accessible to all.

I’m jointly appointed in the departments of Information Technology & Management and Humanities as a tenured Associate Professor at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. And I’m currently writing a book on WebRTC for Pragmatic Programmers.

Spring 2021 Courses

I teach courses on web design and development, including a two-course sequence in web development and web design that is part of the core undergraduate curriculum in Information Technology and Management. I also recently taught a course on WebRTC.


Book cover.

Released in a revised and expanded second edition in 2017, How to Design and Write Web Pages Today is a wide-ranging introduction to designing and writing in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with the assistance of Git, an open-source version control system. The book covers fundamental standards-compliant web development methods and techniques, including responsive web design, but it’s written to be useful and accessible even to readers without an existing technical background.
