The 2009-2010 academic year, I was on sabbatical in Damascus, Syria, studying the dialect of Arabic spoken there. I collected a few recordings and wrote some programs to work with them. Take a look at my summary.

Research Groups and Independent Studies


Usually, Fitchburg State has fielded an undergraduate programming team, which has travelled to several competitions a year throughout the Northeast. In Fall 2012 and 2013, we sent two teams to the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest Preliminary. A team went to the CCSCNE programming contest in April 2014.

If you think you might have any interest, contact me.

Over the years, we've had several competitors in the Firefighting Robot Contest at Trinity College. Most recently, Will Duthie entered this robot
