Academic Program at Centre College
Michael Bradshaw joined Centre as associate professor of computer science in 2014. He earlier served as visiting assistant professor at the College (2005-2007), followed by an appointment as associate professor of computer science at Hanover College (2007-2014).
His research interests explore the intersection of gaming and education, in particular, how game elements which encourage engagement can be infused into traditional assignments. On campus, Bradshaw is an advocate for how computer science can fit within a liberal arts setting, and he explores an interdisciplinary setting with his students, such as data science, data visualization, 3D animation and modeling, and environmental simulation.
Bradshaw earned a B.A. in computer science and mathematics at Centre in 1999, in addition to a master’s degree and Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
