Aaron's Academic Portfolio


  • Teaching: My goal is to deliver an outstanding learning experience for my students. I combine an analogy-rich explanation of theory with a hands-on, example-driven coverage of technical material. I believe most of my students' learning will take place outside of my classroom, and thus I put the utmost effort into designing assignments which focus the students' attention on problem discovery and resolution. As such, I believe I help my students develop learning skills which will outlast the technical details of any single class.
  • Programming: Formerly a senior software engineer, I have worked in all aspects of systems development. Experience includes developing client-server and thin-client applications, published application programming interfaces for third-party developers, and lightweight tools for data processing, statistical correlation and analysis.
  • Consulting: Experience in both academic and industry settings. Consulting engangements have ranged from long-term on-site staffing to single-day projects, remote development and custom-training.
  • Communication: As an extrovert, I am always comfortable speaking/presenting to large audiences, answering questions, and developing analogies for conceptual understanding. I have written technical books and newspaper editorials, edited newspaper articles and textbook chapters. I am currently writing a textbook for use in my Personal Life-cycle Economics class at Boston University.
