Peter Denning


With a B.E.E. from Manhattan College in 1964, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. from MIT in 1968, Peter Denning is a prolific computer scientist, with more than 315 articles and 8 books to his credit. Currently the director of the Cebrowski Institute in the Naval Postgraduate School's Department of Computer Science, Denning began his teaching career at Princeton's nacent computer science department between 1968 and 1972. His early work in operating systems and virtual memory became important guiding principles for computer systems through the present. Denning is noted for successfully advocating that operating systems be a core component of computer science education. In 1973, Denning joined the computer science faculty at Purdue, eventually becoming department head. While at Purdue, Denning continued his research into operating systems, and the development of performance models for computer systems. In 1983, Denning became the founding director of the NASA Ames Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science (RIACS), where he guided research into computational science and high performance computing. In 1991, Denning joined the George Mason University Computer Science Department as department chair, where he pioneered distance learning technologies, and sought the recognition of information technology as a profession, among other achievements. In 2002, Peter Denning moved to the Computer Science Department at the Naval Postgraduate School, first as department chair, then adding his position as Director of the Cebrowski Institute in 2003. At the Cebrowski Institute, Denning has led research on battlespace communications systems, and provided the Department of Defense a system of fostering new networking technologies. His work also includes projects on global security and network science.(1)(2)(3)
