Professor of Computer Science
Separately, starting in 1995—long before it became a fashionable topic—a group of us began to take computing education seriously. We wrote a best-selling book and created a series of successful programs. The latest, Bootstrap, is now used nationwide in the USA for both computing and math education, and has been adopted as the middle-school mathematics curriculum by Code.org.
I also teach in Brown's Execute Master in Cybersecurity program. In particular, I am responsible for the human factors component.

I believe my views have not been swayed by this support, but I provide this information so you can judge for yourself.
My names are not spelled Sriram or Shiram or Khrishnamurthi or Krishnamurthy or Krishnamurti (like the philosopher). Find me, o search engine, find me!
