Hi, I’m Matt Curinga. I write software, research digital media, and teach in the educational technology program at Adelphi University.

My recent research looks at the politics of software design. As an instructional designer and programmer, my current primary research focus is a hybrid voice user interface / graphical user interface (VUI/GUI) data analytics and visualization system built with the MyCroft AI platform. The initial data set is meant to allow non-technical users to analyze the incidents and impacts of racial and ethnic segregation in New York City public schools. As an educator I have been focused on teaching computer science as a critical media literacy: at the graduate and undergraduate level, and as co-founder of Zero Day Camp: a non-profit that teaches computing; and creates Free Open Source Software, tools, and curricula for (critical) computer science education.
