Geoffrey Herman


Geoffrey Herman is a Teaching Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has worked with the Illinois Foundry for Innovation in Engineering Education for the past four years supporting faculty across the College of Engineering as they reimagine engineering curricula and courses. These efforts have focused on enabling faculty to teach more effectively at increasingly large scale and integrating computational skills and design into engineering courses. He, in turn, teaches computer architecture to hundreds of students each semester and research methods to a growing community of engineering education researchers at Illinois. His research focuses on understanding how students learn engineering and computer science concepts. He earned his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois as a Mavis Future Faculty Fellow and conducted postdoctoral research with Ruth Streveler at Purdue University.
