Sofia Lemons

University of New Hampshire
Lecturer, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Department of Computer Science

Sofia is a Lecturer in Computer Science with a background in artificial intelligence and math education. She currently teaches a course on social and legal issues around the Internet in which students learn about, among other things, Creative Commons and open source licenses. She has contributed to multiple open source initiatives such as Google's Summer of Code. Through organizations such as Girls Who Code, Sofia works to make Computer Science a field which is powered by the ideas of a broader and more inclusive community. As a part of the Ambassador program, she hopes to integrate OER into her course and model for students how the open licenses they learn about in her class can be used and how a professional can contribute to such communities and projects.
