Dan Armendariz

I'm a Preceptor in Computer Science at Harvard University working on curriculum design and research for the introductory sequence of Computer Science classes at Harvard College.

Previously, I was a masters student at UC Berkeley studying Computer Science with a focus on online education, advised by Professors Dan Garcia and Armando Fox. My work investigated student metacognition in online courses through an adaptive exercise system that customized the progression of question topics to each student. While at UC Berkeley I was also a teaching assistant for CS10: The Beauty and Joy of Computing and co-taught CS194-23: The Art and Science of Digital Photography.

I graduated in 2006 with a B.S. degree in Biology from MIT with interests in computational biology, computer science, and photography. I worked for MIT's Information Systems & Technology and was on the staff of the Image and Meaning workshop series, part of the Envisioning Science Program at Harvard's Initiative of Innovative Computing.

Beginning in 2008 I was a network engineer for Mindset Media. In 2011, Meebo acquired the company where I continued my role until May 2012.

Since 2007, I have taught numerous courses at Harvard Extension and UC Berkeley.

Outside of work and school, I enjoy photography and climbing.
