About Carl Burch

As a computer science professor at Hendrix College, I teach a broad range of undergraduate computer science courses. Aside from teaching, my primary professional activity is with developing open-source software for computer science education. Logisim, for designing and simulating digital circuits, is easily the biggest of these projects; though my work now concentrates on Toves, which is intended to be its successor.
