Site Navigation
Current and past courses I have taught can be found in the Teaching section. The Research section contains my research interests, projects, publications and curriculum vitae (CV). Documentation useful for students, links to the CSUB library databases, and links to various computer related organizations are in the Links section. My mailing address and email address can be found in the Contact section.
Linux Tip
If you are having any issues with the graphical desktop on Linux, press CTRL+ALT+F1 to drop down to the text-based console where you can log in to the 'student' account with a single terminal session. To go back to the graphical desktop, press CTRL+ALT+F7 (but don't forget to log out of Sleipnir and the 'student' account in the text console first).
Information Security (IS) & Global Intelligence and National Security (GINS)
Computer Science students wanting to know more about the Information Security concentration and GINS students wanting to know more about how to incorporate technology skills into their GINS coursework can click on the IS/GINS link in the menu to the left.
Social Networking Note
I will accept requests to connect on LinkedIn from students in the CEE/CS department. However, to maintain propriety, I will not send requests to connect to students. It might take me a few days to a week to respond to connection requests on LinkedIn. I do not have a Facebook or Google+ account, so any requests claiming to come from me from those sources should be treated as a spam or phishing attempt.
