Biographical Sketch

Luther Tychonievich is a full-time lecturer in the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia. He earned a Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Virginia, M.S. and B.S. degrees in computer science from Brigham Young University, and A.A. and A.S. degrees from Lakeland Community College.


My research has three main thrusts. In computer science education I research pedagogical practices and course designs that attract more and more diverse students into computing. As part of FHISO and rootsdev I research data models for facilitating large-scale cooperative family history research. I am also a theoretician and algorithmist, having developed algorithms and written proofs on several topics within computing.
