Dr. Peter H. Fröhlich

Guten Tag!

You have found me. Well, if you were looking for me anyway. I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Director of the Johns Hopkins Gaming Lab. I am also the faculty advisor for the Amnesty International and eSports Association student groups.

Yes, that is indeed an umlaut in my name: I was born and raised in ./Earth/Europe/Germany/Bavaria/Munich/ as it were. I have been in the US for close to 20 years now and I am celebrating my eleventh year at Johns Hopkins in 2016. Back in 2015, I won the William H. Huggins Excellence in Teaching Award, so apparently at least some people think I know what I am doing.


Aside from the courses I teach this semester (see the big colored boxes above), I have taught all of the following in the past:

I have some universal course policies that apply to all courses I teach. Note that these change every now and then, so you probably want to read them every time you take a course with me.


I have pretty diverse interests in computer science but I am probably best thought of as a "systems guy" as it were. Here's where I like to play:

If you want to do a project with me it should probably be in one of those areas. Some of the stuff I play with is available publicly if you're curious:

Note that I try to keep the number of independent studies I advise to a minimum because that allows me to pay attention to each project. Please don't feel bad if I turn you down because of prior commitments.
