Mark Boady is an Associate Teaching Professor at Drexel University. He mainly teaches CS502, CS260, CS270, and CS171.

He has three degrees from Drexel (BS, MS, PhD). All in computer science. His PhD research was to build a computer algebra system to find the Laplace-Dirichlet Eigenvalues on regular N sided polygons. This required symbolic computation, working with infinite summations, and large multi-dimensional arrays.

He is also interested in Quantum Computers, a field where linear algebra and symbolic computation play a big part in algorithm design.

He likes video games specifically vintage gaming. He is always trying to make his classes more engaging to students.

Ask him about: Algorithms, Theory of Computation, Quantum Algorithms, Vintage Gaming, Symbolic Computation, or CS Education.

He is currently the Faculty Advisor for the Drexel Gaming Association and Hack4Impact Drexel.

When he is not at Drexel, he enjoys spending time with his wife, their four cats, and their chinchilla. He has one male child but will not post anything else about that online.
