Staff Announcement

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Keith Marzullo as Director of the CISE Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS), effective September 20, 2010.

Keith is currently the Chair of the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University of California, San Diego. He has been on the UCSD faculty since 1993. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1984; for his Ph.D. he developed the Xerox Research Internet Clock Synchronization protocol, which was one of the first practical fault-tolerant protocols that addressed this issue. In 1986, he left Xerox and joined the CS Department at Cornell University where with colleagues Ken Birman and Robert Cooper, he started the company ISIS Distributed Systems, which provided middleware for fault tolerant distributed applications; this software was used by financial and investment institutions. He served as a Professor at Large in the Computer Science Department at the University of Tromso from 1999-2003, and was Chair of ACM SIGOPS from 2003-2007. His current research focuses on issues in distributed systems and security, and on scalable protocols for data center communication fabrics.

In addition to welcoming Keith, wed also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Ty Znati for his numerous contributions to CISE and to the computing community during his three year tenure as CNS Division Director. Ty will return to the University of Pittsburgh in September 2010.
