Nate (Nathaniel) Weinman
Hey! I am a second year Ph.D. student advised by Armando Fox and Marti Hearst in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UC Berkeley. My research lies at the intersection of human computer interaction, education, and software engineering. I am grateful to have been supported by a department EECS Excellence Award.
I am currently interested in better understanding the power of Parsons Problems (example) in CS1 and CS2 and other classes to teach students complex technical concepts. Additionally, this past summer (2018) I served as a GSI for CS160, User Interface Design and Development.
