Biography

Tom received his PhD from the Computer Science department at Cornell University. His graduate thesis investigated the relationships between programming language constructs for data abstraction and concurrent programming.

Before coming to Williams, Tom was a member of the computer science department at Purdue University. While at Purdue, his research activities included projects on compiler optimization and distributed file systems. Tom's current research focuses on the analysis of the performance characteristics of network transport protocols.

Tom typically teaches electives on compilers, networks and operating systems. He has also been actively invovled in the teaching and development of our introductory course.
