Interests, Education, and Employment

Studied Information Science at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Library and Information Science.

Information Science includes a mixture of software engineering, database and information retrieval system design, educational psychology, and cognitive psychology.

My interests included learning technology, information retrieval systems, database modeling, knowledge representation, artificial intelligence, programming languages, and teaching.

I worked as a staff member of the Instructional Technology Program and Educational Technology Services at UC Berkeley from 1987 to 2007. During this time, I worked with IMS Global, which sets interoperability and data exchange specifications for educational technology systems.
