Computer Science Department Chair Dr. Peter Denning
Peter J. Denning is Distinguished Professor and Chair of Computer Science, and Director of the Cebrowski Institute for information innovation at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. He has held faculty positions at Princeton, Purdue, NASA Ames Research Center, and George Mason University. He is a pioneer in operating systems and computer system performance models. He was a co-founder of CSNET, the award-winning CS community network that bridged between the ARPANET and the NSFNET. He holds 26 awards for technical and service contributions to computing. His latest book, Great Principles of Computing (with Craig Martell), presents a holistic view of computing and its interactions with many fields. He is Editor of Ubiquity, ACM's online magazine about the future of computing.
