Alex Kuhn is a computer science professor at SUNY Korea. He teaches students about developing and designing software products and also explores how to use technology to design better systems for learning and conveying information. He has pursued these interests for over a decade in a variety of roles: professor, researcher, software developer, and content creator.
Before SUNY Korea, Alex worked at Apple developing Swift Playgrounds and creating educational curriculum, which teaches people to code. He completed a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Michigan. There he was the lead developer and researcher on the Zydeco Project, which investigated how to use mobile technology to support students in collecting and sharing multimedia data for constructing evidence-based scientific explanations. He has also run his own software development company focusing on consulting and building mobile apps.
Alex has given talks and taught workshops and classes in both the academic and professional setting. These range from an Apple WWDC talk on localizing content, workshops on conducting user research for Brazilian software engineering students, to talks at international professional conferences, such as this one from WebCamp Zagreb on Persuasive Design.
