Name:Majeed Kazemitabaar

Majeed Kazemitabaar is a second year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto working with Professor Tovi Grossman in the Dynamic Graphics Project (DGP).

His research is at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Computer Science Education. he designs, implements, and evaluates engaging and effective computational learning experiences. More specifically, he explored (a) tangible approaches to programming, (b) incorporating data-driven programming into visual programming tools, and (c) easing the transition from visual to text-based programming.

His research has led to five publications, mostly in top-tier HCI venues (CHI, UIST, and IDC), and has won a Best-Paper award, and a Best Late-Breaking Work award for his first-authored publications.

He has recently developed CodeStruct, an intermediary programming environment for novices transitioning from block-based programming environments to text-based environments.
