In 2001, Todd joined Virginia Tech as a Senior Research Associate in the Center for Assessment, Evaluation, and Educational Programming (CAEEP) while finishing his Ph.D. research in Education, Curriculum and Instruction. While at CAEEP, he applied his skills in database design, management and statistical analysis to research projects for several programs primarily within the Commonwealth of Virginia, including several within the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Department of Correctional Education. In addition, he co-authored several presentations and reports, including a paper sponsored by the Federal Department of Education. Todd went on to work for the Office of Institutional Research at Virginia Tech. There, his primary responsibility was to provide the electronic support and final delivery of the university’s SACS Reaffirmation of Accreditation. It was in this capacity that Todd became interested in the integration of technology efforts across the institution and the breakdown of information “silos.” In his current role as Associate Registrar in the Office of the University Registrar, Todd is working to bring technology support to the curriculum approval process, provide university-wide support in keeping Virginia Tech’s classroom technology aligned with future pedagogical and capacity needs, and to innovate the application of technology in undergraduate education.
Todd lives in Blacksburg, VA with his wife Gwen and their three children. His wife also completed her Ph.D. at Virginia Tech, and both are loyal Hokies. Depending on the time of year, you might find Todd fishing with children, hiking, biking, teaching the kids to ski and snowboard, or spending time at the beach with the family. Todd also volunteers as a den leader in his son's Cub Scout Pack. Todd’s personal interests include American history, and harnessing augmented reality technology to visualize history.
