Steven Fitzgerald is a Professor of Computer Science at California State University, Northridge, and his teaching focuses on computer information technology (CIT) courses and computer architecture classes. His current creative activities involve the development of browser-based applications that support the undergraduate curriculum (https://github.com/smf-steve).

In the recent past, Steve was heavily involved in the development of high-impact practices to provide students with hands-on opportunities to build real-world software applications and to manage these systems within both a cloud and on-premise IT environments. He oversaw the retooling of the department’s Senior Design classes (both COMP and CIT), and also created and directed the Matador Emerging Technology and Arts Laboratory, which developed this application.

Steve's previous research interests include compiler technology, high-performance computing, identity management, and cloud computing. Steve has participated in a number of research projects associated with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute, and Lockheed Martin Skunk Works. Steve was also part of a startup company, Eucalyptus Systems, that developed an on-premise AWS-like cloud software.

During his tenure at CSUN, Steve has also held several administrative positions including: Information Security Officer, Director of Academic Technology, and Chief Technology Officer.
