Biography

I came to the United States to study M.B.A., and saw a personal computer for the first time. When I learned how to use a word processor, Word Star, I found that it was more convenient and powerful than the traditional typewriter. Since then, I fell for computers and software, and eventually changed my study to computers - programming and applications, because I thought that computers would dominate entire business world in the near future. Now, my expectation came true due to the wide-spread of the Internet.

My main interest in the information technology has been a programming, such as COBOL, BASIC, C++, Java, etc., and love to teach the basics of a programming language. After more than 30 years passed since I first met a personal computer, I am still amazed all the technology newly-developed today. Information technology became an essential infrastructure in any industries, so all King students should be familiar with information technology, regardless of their major field of study.

Current research

My original research interest was database, data warehouse, and data mining. After I came to King University, my study focused more on the effectiveness and efficiency of the long-distance study, due to online classes. I also have much interest in a big data analysis (a field of data science).
