Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 3/90 to present Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department: Director of Departmental Computing Responsible for the department's use of computing to support academic and administrative needs. Supervising the Education Computing Facility (ECF) technical staff that supports over 400 networked workstations, PC's and Macintoshes. Designed and coordinated the construction of 3 large computer clusters for student use. Group responsibilities include support of educational software, licensing of third party software, hardware maintenance support, network support, user training, long range planning, World Wide Web development, etc. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 12/85 to 3/90 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department: Project Manager Responsible for the deployment and support of the Department's 200 Athena workstations and printers. Assisted in various faculty initiatives to develop educational software. Developed the Courseware Development System and used it for creating applications in the area of applied probability and ordinary differential equations. Software is written in C++, C and SCHEME under UNIX/X11 and runs on a VaxStations, IBM PC/RTs, DECstations, and Sun SPARCstations. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 9/84 to 10/85 Project Athena: Course Consultant, Task Force Coordinator Assisted MIT faculty incorporating computer-based educational materials into their courses. Coordinated initial allocation and deployment of 160 networked Athena AT workstations. Supervised Athena student programmers providing support for faculty educational software development using the workstation model. Coordinated a process for term by term allocation of computer resources among development projects and courses in Athena's distributed environment. Project currently supports a network of Vax 11/750's, MicroVax II's provided by DEC, and RT/PC's and PC/AT's provided by IBM. The Saddlebrook Corporation, Cambridge, MA: 5/82 to 12/82 Project Manager Responsible for the design of an interactive Marketing Information System to be included with a Front Office computer system developed for use by thrift institutions in the USA. Project based on VAX 11/780's using VMS. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 10/78 to 1/81 Energy Laboratory: Sponsored Research Staff Responsible for the development of electric utility capacity planning methodologies. Primary assignment to the "Electric Generation Expansion Analysis System" (EGEAS) Project. Responsibilities included project planning, user needs assessment, methodology development, database design, and research programming coordination. My role also required significant travel to utilities, agencies and research organizations across the country and involved many design presentations to both large and small groups. Project based on IBM 370 and 3033 using VP/CMS and TSO respectively. Stone & Webster Engineering Corp., Boston, MA: 9/76 to 1/78 Electrical Division: Engineer Responsible for the development of computer models for electric utility system planners. My role involved contract negotiations, preparation for advisory board reviews, and coordination of model development efforts. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 6/75 to 8/76 Energy Laboratory: Programmer / Analyst Assigned to an Energy Lab project in which an electric generation expansion model that incorporated environmental constraints was revised and tested. State Street Bank & Trust Co., Boston, MA: 1/73 to 1/75 Management Sciences: Programmer Responsible for maintenance of an interactive managerial accounting system for use by the company's Computer Services Division.


Queues Enforth Development, Inc., Cambridge, MA: 11/89 to 11/94 Developed and implemented algorithms for use in a system that infers queueing statistics from service time information. U.S. Windpower, Inc., Burlington, MA: 12/82 to 5/84 Developed specifications for a Windplant Economic Model to be used in evaluating the costs and benefits of alternative windplant proposals. Suggested organizational changes required to accommodate the growing role of computer applications development within the company. Assisted in development of standards for microcomputer purchases and in the selection of a DBMS. Citibank, N.A., Sao Paulo, Brazil; 6/81 to 9/81 Retained to design a planning methodology tailored to management of distributed development and maintenance. Developed general specifications for a project planning and control package to assist managers on the world, regional, and country levels, with built-in interfaces to improve coordination. Science Applications, Inc., McLean, Va.; 8/78 to 10/78 Designed a modeling approach for evaluating the impact of solar generating technologies on electric utilities. Authored sections of a proposal to DOE regarding use of this modeling approach as part of a technology assessment of solar energy in the South Central U.S.A. (SAI was awarded the $1m project). Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 3/78 to 7/78 Retained by the Energy Laboratory to evaluate a decomposition optimization technique for modeling electric utility capacity expansion to see if the problem formulation could include distributed and centralized Photovoltaic generation within the utility grid. Also assisted with the development of the computer code to test the technique, using FORTRAN under VP/CMS on an IBM 370. Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Council, Boston, MA: 1/78 to 5/78 As an associate with Clark-McGlennon Associates, Inc., Boston, Ma. I consulted for the MEFSC on a project entitled "An Integrated Approach to Regulated Energy Facility Siting". Worked closely with the MEFSC staff to establish realistic user needs. Coordinated a survey of existing models and databases relevant to siting issues. Designed a methodology that integrated demand forecasting, supply planning, siting, and environmental impact modeling capabilities.


Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA: 2/81 to 6/81 Enrolled in the Technology and Policy Program program within the Mechanical Engineering Department. DOE funding cuts eliminated financial support in the second term. Withdrew with option to return.
