Hello, my name is Alan Nochenson.

I'm an Adjunct in the Department of Computer Science at Saint Joseph's University and also teach at The Mesivta High School of Greater Philadelphia

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.


I have a B.S. in Information Systems from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. in Information Sciences & Technology from Penn State University.

During summer 2016, I taught programming to middle and high-schoolers at the Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs. I also worked in Spring 2016 at Radnor Middle School.

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.
