Brief Biography

Dr. McCann (Ph.D. 1994, North Dakota State University) has been a faculty member in the department since August of 2004. Prior to joining the department, he served on the faculties of the University of Wisconsin at Parkside and the University of Central Oklahoma, teaching courses on a variety of computer science topics. He teaches Introduction to Discrete Structures (CSc 245) and other undergraduate Computer Science courses, has served on the ACM SIGCSE symposium committee five times, oversees the section leader program, advises students, and wonders why there appears to be an inverse relationship between driver attentiveness to bicyclists and the size of the car they drive. McCann has been honored with the University of Arizona College of Science 2011 Distinguished Early Career Teaching Award, the 2012 University of Arizona Foundation Leicester and Kathryn Sherrill Creative Teaching Award, and three departmental teaching awards (2016, 2015, and 2009).


If the University of Arizona has a disclaimer that I'm supposed to place on my web page, they haven't told me about it. That could mean they whole-heartedly agree with everything you'll find in this collection of pages, but I rather doubt it.
