Richard Wells ’82
Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Computer Science
I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science for the 2022-23 academic year, on leave from Normandale Community College in Bloomington, MN (part of the MinnState system of -2 and 4-year colleges). I’ll be teaching CS 201 and CS 111.
I was a software developer for 30+ years before going into teaching. My professional experience has ranged from educational software to image processing to CAD/CAM and 3D modeling.
I am also a Carleton grad: Chemistry, ’82. How did I get from Chemistry to Computer Science? Drop by some time; we’ll start the conversation there and then see where it goes. Fair warning: once you get me talking about my kids, my wife, my dog, or baseball, it will be hard to stop me.
At Carleton since 2022.
