I am very happy to have made a small contribution to a very large publication. The 4th Edition of Web Style Guide, Foundations of User Experience Design (Yale University Press, Patrick J. Lynch, Sarah Horton, and Ethan Marcotte) is a necessary part of learning proper design in this field of Web Development. ‘This new revised edition confirms Web Style Guide as the go-to authority in a rapidly changing market’ (Yale University Press).

“With this new edition, the authors update the book to include important changes in the field of web building. This book will appeal to the professional web builder, the instructor, the scholar, and, of course, the student.”—Greg O’Toole, author of Sustainable Web Ecosystem Design

Teaching & Research @ Penn State University

Penn State

As a faculty member in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University, I teach many courses related to building with web technology. I focus on leading languages, software and methods that scale up to the demands of the assembled web that users expect across any number of mobile devices and platforms. In the contemporary world, every environment is a web environment and users expect a beautiful and personal experience.

I also use these technologies in National Science Foundation funded research projects across different Penn Sate institutes and colleges working to discover and implement new ways to augment scientific collaboration, development, and teaching across the planet.
