environment called MSIM. I also was a lecturer
in C programming and data structures using C for five years (1992-1997)

I am currently completing my PhD degree in Computer Science at DePaul.
an active member of the American
Sign Language project (ASL project) at CTI. I worked in the
creation of a more realistic graphical human hand to be used in
the transcription of signs. My dissertation research has to do with
the automated conjugation of agreement verbs in ASL using computer
main research interests are related with Computer Graphics, HCI,
and writing code!.
fun, I like to play soccer -haven't played recently though-, bowling,
squash, Colombian coffee (the -real- colombian coffee of course),
walk, collect music (80's, oldies, dance, techno, soft rock, new
