Hello, my name is Alan Nochenson.
At Saint Joe's, I'm teaching CSC 115 and CSC 351.
At the Mesivta, I'm teaching Computers (broadly and narrowly) to all grades.
From 2014-2016, I lived and learned in Jerusalem, Israel at a variety of different yeshivas, which institutions for higher Talmudic studies and analysis, including at at Darche Noam Shapell's and Ohr Somayach.
While in graduate school, my research focused on security and privacy. I’ve specifically been concerned with how people make decisions and how psychological biases affect these decisions. I’ve designed and programmed experiments that were run on Amazon Mechanical Turk, conducted sophisticated game-theoretic analyses, and reviewed papers for a variety of conferences.
In summers 2011 and 2012, I interned for Zynga. First I worked as a Software Development Engineer on the Platform team and then as an Application Security Engineer. Before that I interned at Amazon as a Software Development Engineer on the Similarities team.Previously, I taught Tae Kwon Do with Can Do Martial Arts.
