Faculty Addition Announced

The NC State University Department of Computer Science is pleased to announce the addition of David L. Roberts to our faculty for the fall 2010 semester. 

Roberts will join the department as an assistant professor in August 2010, providing expertise that further builds our strengths in teaching and research activities focused on computer games.  His teaching will expand the department's new concentration in game development and his research efforts will broaden the scope of research in the university's Digital Games Research Initiative. 

Roberts’ areas of research interest include interactive virtual experiences, artificial intelligence, computational social psychology, multiagent systems and simulation. His research has focused on the development and testing of technologies that enable non-technical users to perform complex technical tasks using computers.  He is interested in developing artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques that enable domain experts to accomplish more with less effort. 

Roberts is currently completing his Ph.D. in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, with an expected graduation date of May 2010.  For more information on Roberts, click here.
