EDUCATION

Ph.D. Information and Computer Science, University of California, Irvine, September, 2000.
Dissertation: An Analysis of the Hypertext Versioning Domain

M.S. Information and Computer Science, University of California, Irvine, Dec. 1994.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Professor, University of California, Santa Cruz, July 2000-present. Department Chair, July 2010-present. Performed research and teaching as a tenure-track faculty member in the Department of Computer Science. Taught classes on Software Engineering and Computer Games at the graduate and undergraduate level. Supervised both masters and doctoral students in the pursuit of their thesis work. Research focuses include software repository mining, software bug prediction, level design in computer games, procedural content generation for games, design of social network games, software engineering and games, Internet protocol design, and hypertext versioning.

Chair, Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) Working Group, Internet Engineering Task Force, March 1997-March 2004. Founded and led this working group to enable Web-based remote collaborative authoring and versioning tools to be broadly interoperable. Assembled a broad coalition of participants from industry and academia, including Microsoft, Netscape, IBM, Novell, Xerox, Rational, Merant, and OTI. Developed the WebDAV Distributed Authoring Protocol, extensions to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) to support remote collaborative authoring, now supported by such industry-leading applications and servers as Office 2000, Go Live, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Acrobat, Internet Explorer, Apache, Internet Information Services, Exchange, and many others. Instrumental in the formation of the follow-on Delta-V (versioning and configuration management) working group within the IETF.

Research Assistant, University of California, Irvine, 1993-2000. Performed research for DARPA research projects in the areas of remote collaborative authoring, open hypertext, hypertext versioning, software architecture, and software environments. Participated on several DARPA grant-writing teams.

Teaching Assistant, University of California, Irvine, 1992-1993. Assisted in the teaching of the undergraduate level Software Engineering course, and the Software Engineering Project course. Consistently earned excellent student reviews.

Engineer, Raytheon Equipment Division, 1989-1992. Wrote firmware in C and Ada for the German Civilian Air Traffic Control (ATC) System (DERD), and for a prototype Microwave Airplane Landing System (MLS). Adapted air traffic control software to create a marketing demonstration of a vessel traffic control system. Developed prototype touch panel displays for use with the DERD system. Project highlights include:

SIGNIFICANT VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES

1991 Instructor. Created and taught an 8 week course on C language programming to the Amiga Users Group of the Boston Computer Society.

1993-1996 Host, Cyberspace Report Radio Show. Broadcast on KUCI, 88.9FM, in Irvine, CA. Conducted over 80 interviews on social issues of computing for this 30 minute weekly radio show. Notable guests include Ted Nelson, hypertext champion and pioneer, Richard Stallman, founder of the Free Software Foundation, Emmanuel Goldstein, editor of 2600 magazine, and Roy Fielding, an architect of the HyperText Transfer Protocol. The Cyberspace Report web page was one of the earliest radio shows to exploit the WWW. The collection of interview tapes comprise a significant oral history archive from the beginning of the peak of interest in the Internet in the late 1990's (the ".com boom").
