Meet CCLC Coach Roman Formicola

Roman Formicola

About Roman Formicola: Within computer science, I have special interests in data analytics, formal specification, and audio analysis and manipulation. I am also an avid skier, mountain biker, and rock climber. 

Thoughts on CCLC coaching: I think that working as a CCLC coach is a great opportunity to help incoming students learn and appreciate computer science. Learning CS and programming can oftentimes benefit from face-to-face guidance. As someone who utilized the CS Learning Center when I was in the earlier phases of my college career, I want to help others out. I also appreciate the opportunity to review a lot of this material for myself before I leave. 

CS courses that I can help with: CS 1111, CS 1131, CS 1142, CS 2311, CS 2321, CS 3000, CS 3141, CS 3311, CS 3331, CS 3411, CS 3421, CS 3425, CS 4121, CS 4321, CS 4411, CS 4461, CS 4710, CS 4811, CS 4821, CS 5311, CS 5321, CS 5481, CS 5641, CS 5811, CS 5821, CS 5831

Programming languages that I know: Assembly Language, C, C++, Go, Java, JavaScript, Julia, PHP, Python, R, SQL
