Each week we spotlight an OMSCS TA, so you can get to know who's behind the screen. Here are four questions for Heath Murphy, who TAs CS 6035: Introduction to Information Security.
What do you do professionally?
I’m the director of architecture engineering for HMB, an IT services consulting firm in Columbus, Ohio. I help our clients solve their business problems with technology.
Why do you TA for OMSCS?
I want to give back. The program is challenging yet very rewarding. I was helped by many other TAs on my journey in the OMSCS program and want to pay it forward.
What's your advice for future students in OMSCS?
What's your favorite memory from your time in or working with OMSCS so far?
Finishing the algorithms class, my final one, and then making the trip down to Atlanta for graduation. I graduated in the second-ever OMSCS class, and it was really special to be down on campus. I highly recommend those considering it to take a few days off of work and visit Atlanta and personally walk to receive your diploma. Did I mention that the algorithms class was hard? Beware!
