University College Dublin


I am an Assistant Professor at University College Dublin in the School of Computer Science. I’m currently the International Liaison for the SIGCSE 2020 Symposium and I am very proud to be serving as Chair of the Steering Committee for the new ACM Global Computing Education Conference (CompEd). I am also super happy to be serving as an Associate Editor at ACM Transactions on Computing Education (TOCE). Since 2016 I have been a reviewer for the ACM SIGCSE Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education and am now an Associate Program Chair. I have been on the Program Committee for the ACM International Computing Education Research Conference (ICER) since 2017. I also serve as an Associate Program Chair for the ACM Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE), which I have reviewed for since 2017. I’ve been involved in four ITiCSE working groups which has been great.  In March 2019 I was thrilled to receive, with my co-authors, the SIGCSE 2019 Best Computer Science Education Research Paper Award. The full text of that, along with our presentation is available on my publications page. I’m also happy to announce that I am the chair of the brand new Ireland ACM SIGCSE Chapter! Back in Ireland, I am the external expert for the Department of Education and Skills Leaving Certificate Computer Science subgroup on Teacher Qualification. I have been involved with the International Conference on Pedagogy since 2008. I am the technical editor of AISHE-J, the All Ireland Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, published by the All-Ireland Society for Higher Education, which I am currently the President of. I am also a committee member with the Educational Developers in Ireland Network (EDIN).
