New Faculty Position

I started this semester in a new faculty position.  I am an Assistant Professor, in the School of Computer Science, at Columbus State University.  This is a tenure track position, and I am responsible for teaching the graduate level courses in the Modeling and Simulation program.  I am also to serve as the director of the GEMS-R (Gaming, Education, Modeling & Simulation, and Robotics) Institute - a research center affiliated with the School of Computer Science.

This is great, and exactly what I have been working for the past couple of years.  I now hope to really start developing some of my own research ideas, especially in the areas of what it means for a model to have semantic value - epistemologically, teleologically, or simply semiotically.
