On to Outline 02 - Course Planning.


Lea Wittie graduated Grinnell College in 1998 with a B.A. in Computer Science. She went straight into a Ph.D. program in Computer Science at Dartmouth College. While at Dartmouth, she worked on programming language projects and eventually wrote a thesis on type-safe concurrency. Lea defended her Ph.D. thesis in 2004 and a few months later became an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department of Bucknell University. As a professor, she teaches undergraduate classes, researches programming languages with students, and works on University service projects such as ABET accreditation for the Computer Science department and Middle States accreditation for the University. She also designs new courses such as a crash course in robotics and automated vehicles for first year students in Engineering and an upper level elective in compiler design and optimization for Computer Science majors. She received tenure in 2011 and became an Associate Professor. Lea loves her job and plans to stay in it for at least the next 30 years.
