I am Sam! 👋 I'm an incoming Assistant Teaching Professor in Data Science at UC San Diego starting Fall 2023. I received my PhD in 2023 at UC San Diego advised by Philip Guo. I use methods from human-computer interaction (HCI) to design software tools like Pandas Tutor that help programming, statistics, and data science instructors prepare their lessons. I'm also writing a textbook called Learning Data Science, which will be published by O'Reilly Media in late 2023.

This week we are joined by Philip Guo and Sam Lau, researchers at the University of California, San Diego. Philip and Sam have recently published research on how computer science instructors use artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot in their classrooms. Join us to learn more about the data behind how generative AI is changing the way we teach computer science and coding.
