Xiaohan Zhang

uses algorithms and math to make art, music, and games. Inspired by physics and biology, his work is interactive: it detects the viewer and changes in response to their actions, creating an iterative feedback loop of play. Specializing in web experiences and immersive environments, he hopes that the viewer may find insight to the underlying forces that govern our lives. He exhibits and hosts workshops with organizations such as Gray Area, CODAME, UC Berkeley, and Stanford, as well as in online exhibitions such as The Wrong biennale.

Zoë Wood

Whether it is creating computer graphics models of underwater shipwrecks or using art and creativity to help students learn computational thinking, Professor Zoë Wood’s projects unite visual arts, mathematics and computer science. Via her NSF funded research projects she works with colleagues and students on robotics and computer graphics algorithms for shipwreck discovery and mapping which resulted in the discovery of a rare World War 2 airplane wreck. She works to increase the number of underrepresented students in her field through research projects, outreach activities and advising the student group Women Involved in Software and Hardware (W.I.S.H.). As co-founder of the interdisciplinary minor, Computing for the Interactive Arts, she believes in empowering students to realize their artistic visions via coding.

Richard Johnston

Richard Johnston began his teaching career in 1993 and has taught Mathematics at SBHS since 1998. Richard pioneered the Principles/Introduction to CS course in 2011. He envisioned a computer science program at SBHS that would open doorways into fields of study ranging from the arts to engineering. Richard assumed the role of Director of the CSA in 2016. His hope is to create opportunities for all students to learn to code because he believes every student needs to be able to read, write, do mathematics, and develop code in the modern world.
