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
