I received the B.S. degree from the University of Toledo, Toledo OH, in 1972 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Washington, Seattle, in 1977 and 1979. Before coming to Duke as an Associate Professor in 1986, I was a member of the Computer Science faculties at the University of Oregon, Eugene, from 1978 to 1980, and at the University of Rochester, Rochester NY, from 1980 to 1986. During the 1997-98 academic year, I was on sabbatical at the University of Washington.
ResearchI consider myself an Experimental Computer Scientist with broad interests in Operating Systems for Parallel and Distributed Systems. Some of my current interests and projects include publications is available.
Past Chair of ACM SIGOPS, the Special Interest Group on Operating Systems. Past Chair of the ACM SIG Governing Board.
Teaching and MentoringCourses recently taught include:
Our weekly Systems Seminar: SPIDER meetings.
A list of former students whom I advised for their Ph.D. degrees and where they are now.
I have been a mentor in the CRA Distributed Mentorship Program for 4 undergraduate women considering a future in graduate school in Computer Science and I am currently mentoring Carla Hopkins of Transylvania College in KY. I am also serving as a Mentor for Jonelle Stovall who will be a Freshman at Duke this Fall. She is here with the REU Program.
Life Beyond Computer ScienceHome is...
I also have a life beyond computer science. (Is associating ``life'' with a web link an oxymoron?)
