David Kokorowski is a physicist turned entrepreneur who has a passion for using technology to improve science education. David is also the co-founder of HousingWorks, a company that provides online tools to streamline application, waitlist management, and compliance reporting for the affordable, subsidized, and special needs housing market. While working on his Doctorate, he supplied all the programming and much of the interface for HousingWorks.net.
After obtaining his PhD in experimental atomic physics from MIT, David spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow developing and studying the effectiveness of a prototype online homework system. Based on this work, David joined Effective Educational Technologies (EET) and helped to develop MasteringPhysics--a personalized learning application now available across the higher-ed science curriculum and used by 30% of all US undergraduate science students. EET was acquired by Pearson Education in 2006, where David has continued guiding the expansion and evolution of the Mastering product line as well as helping define the future of Pearson's higher-ed learning technologies.
David lives in Jamaica Plain, and outside of work, spends most of his time with his wife and two young, very energetic boys.
As co-founder of one of the first 100 public access websites on the 'net, John's passion has always been for websites that connect people in healthy and equitable ways. The structure and philosophy of HousingWorks.net owes itself to John's belief that large and balkanized Helping Systems are so often the major obstables to effective help, but a well-designed website could ensure that these broken networks are instantly converted to a functioning and beneficent Ecosystem model, regardless of any service provider's willingness or ability to participate on an equal footing with their service populations. HousingWorks.net truly is the Future of Housing Search and the Future of Waitlist Management Software. John's work history includes:
