I am the Department of Computer Science Chair, Associate Professor, and Program Coordinator for the Information Systems program. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Computer Information Systems, a Master of Science in Information Technology, and a Ph.D. in Information Systems and International Business. My research interests include the strategic use of IT, business intelligence, and information management. My extensive consulting experience has given me expertise in database design, integration, architecture, business analytics, and technology adoption.
I am also a passionate advocate for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. I am involved in various initiatives related to these critical areas, including serving as a Purdue Fort Wayne’s Diversity Council member, previously chairing the International Education Advisory Faculty Senate Subcommittee, and serving as a board member for the Greater Fort Wayne Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. I also support and guide the Hispanos Unidos Student Organization as their Advisor.
Outside of my professional and academic pursuits, I enjoy photography and running. I am fluent in English and Spanish, with native proficiency in each language.
