"My goal as a teacher is to create opportunities for students to design and implement computing applications as they learn and apply fundamental concepts and theory-based practices. Because I view the teacher and the students as collaborators in the learning process, I expect students to be actively engaged in the classroom and in project work outside of class."
Dr. Walton is a Professor of Computer Science and is the Charles and Mildred Jenkins Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science. She serves as an advisor to students majoring in Computer Science or Computer Science/Mathematics, and she directs undergraduate reseaerch and projects in computer science.
Dr. Walton's previous professional experience includes: Senior CyberSecurity Research Consultant at Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Senior Member of the Technical Staff at the Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University; Associate Professor and Assistant Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Central Florida; President of Software Engineering Technology, Inc.; Assistant Vice President, Division Manager, and Senior Systems Analyst for Science Applications International Corporation, Inc.; and Senior Data Systems Programmer for Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, Inc.
Dr. Walton's research interests involve rigorous methods for specification and evaluation of software systems. She has published many technical papers in software engineering and computer science conferences and journals and has directed graduate and undergraduate student research that has resulted in papers presented at regional and national professional meetings.
