Dr. Giovanni Vincenti is an Associate Professor and joined the Division of Science, Information Arts and Technologies in 2013. He serves as Program Director for the degree in Applied Information Technology since 2014. He primarily teaches courses in computer programming and database systems using a hands-on, project-based learning approach. Groups that he supervises include the ARGOS development team (an augmented reality application to help astronauts carry out missions, based on the NASA SUITS Design Challenge), the indoor farming group, and the cybersecurity group.
His main areas of research focus on two major domains: the application of fuzzy sets to data mining and agent-based modeling, and creating solutions that support programming education. He has been active in the world of e-learning by editing two books with James Braman on virtual environments applied to educational contexts, founding and managing the Transactions on e-Learning, sponsored by the European Alliance for Innovation, and by starting the EAI International Conference on e-Learning, e-Education, and Online Training (eLEOT).
