Mark Goadrich to teach at Hendrix this fall
After carefully considering many excellent applicants,
we are pleased to welcome Mark Goadrich as a tenure-track
computer science professor this fall, taking over after Dwayne
Collins' retirement. Mark completed his undergraduate work
in Ohio at Kenyon College, majoring in Mathematics and Philsophy,
and then he earned his PhD in computer science
at the University of Wisconsin — Madison.
Since then, he has been a professor at Centenary College of
Louisiana, where he has been their sole computer science instructor.
His primary research interest is in applying artificial intelligence
to board games, though he also has interests in developing
computer games, mobile apps, and robots.
This coming year, in addition to teaching several regular courses,
Mark will introduce Interactive Game Development to our
curriculum. 24 Mar 2014
