Dr. Boon Thau Loo is non-stop.
When he’s not managing a research team of six PhD students and one post-doc, he is teaching two computer science courses of over 100 students, pursuing entrepreneurial ventures, and serving as principle investigator (PI) on a number of Department of Defense and National Science Foundation departmental grants.
Oh, and he oversees 18 Masters programs as Penn’s Associate Dean for the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Needless to say, time is a precious commodity for Boon. So, when he says developing an online course was the opportunity of a lifetime, we should all take notice.
