Pamela Thompson, MBA, PHD

Welcome!  The purpose of this site is to provide information on my many research and teaching interests including data mining, ecommerce, technology use in teaching, and entrepreneurship.  I have over twenty years of experience in IT including experience with Cobol and mainframes all the way to the latest technologies in data mining and ecommerce.

I am an associate professor in Information Systems/Computer Science at Catawba College in historic Salisbury, NC.  I also teach both undergraduate and graduate classes at UNC Charlotte in the Department of Computer Science. I own a small business, I Promise Project LLC – you may have seen us recently in the Charlotte Observer.  Through this business I own the trademark iProm!se.  I am currently exploring commercial use of beacons and NFC tags and have a few projects underway – one has a provisional patent and is under development this summer with students at Catawba College, UNC Charlotte and collaborators at CATS (Charlotte Area Transit System).

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science/Computer Information Systems from UNC Charlotte and my MBA is from AACSB accredited James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  I have worked as a programmer, systems analyst, web master, and consultant for small and large companies.  Recent web sites that I have helped to develop include:
Georgia Gun Store
Rowan Blues and Jazz Society

Let me know if there is a topic you would like to discuss!  I look forward to your comments and feedback.


Dr. Pamela Thompson
