Maureen Doyle, Ph.D.
Department of Computer Science Chair
I (she/her) was raised in Tewksbury, a town about 20 miles from Boston, MA. I live in Kentucky and enjoy the beauty of the arts and parks of greater Cincinnati.
I earned my PhD in Scientific Computing and Computational Mathematics from Stanford University in 2004. My research interests include recruitment and retention of STEM majors as well as empirical software engineering.
I enjoy teaching programming classes and meeting students when they are first starting their studies here at NKU, and also enjoy teaching graduate classes that critically examine evidence-based practices in software engineering. I worked in industry for almost 20 years and enjoy sharing my successes, and failures, with students as a motivation for learning and thinking critically.
I am the faculty advisor for the Women In Informatics group and currently serve as co-chair for National Council for Women In Technology’s Academic Alliance. I am also co-editor of ACM’s SIGCSE Bulletin.
