CS PhD Student Adalbert Gerald Soosai Raj Awarded Capstone PhD Teaching Award

Adalbert Gerald Soosai RajAdalbert Gerald is a PhD student in Computer Sciences and Education, with a focus on making computer science education accessible and relevant to everyone. He has taught a variety of computer sciences classes, including programming classes on modern C++, Python, Java, and machine organization and programming. He has also taught Intro to Operating Systems and Teaching Computer Science to K-12 Students.

Gerald is motivated as a teacher by the satisfaction he gets after a well-taught class in which he was able to engage and inspire his students. He enjoys having students come back to him after taking an introductory course and tell him that they declared a computer sciences major after taking the course. “The thought that I can never tell where my influence stops as a teacher, inspires me every day,” he said.
