BLACK LIVES MATTER

About Me

I am Dr. Brittany Johnson-Matthews, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University. You may also know me as my pen name, Brittany Johnson. I am currently recruiting students to work in my lab!

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University (2017), after getting my B.A. in Computer Science from the College of Charleston (2011). I explore sociotechnical problems pertaining to developer productivity and software development/use, such as tool support, work environments, ethics, and software for social good. My research is interdisciplinary, cross-cutting with research in software engineering, human-computer interaction, and machine learning.

Outside of work, I enjoy doing anything that allows me to be creative. From painting on canvas to painting my nails, I love to express myself! I also have a passion for mentoring and encouraging others to reach for the stars (while never forgetting who you are or where you started).
