Ph.D. Computer Science
North Carolina State University
Dr. Bares explores ways to make mathematics and computing more accessible to young people so as to broaden participation in computing by women and other underrepresented populations. He is currently developing and evaluating new Web-based coding tools to teach computing through visual arts and film. Dr. Bares also does research in intelligent user interfaces to augment human creativity and productivity, especially in areas of film and visual storytelling. Dr. Bares welcomes undergraduate student researchers to join the Immersive Stories Lab.
