Currently a Researcher at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA, he teaches Computer Science and is developing educational material based on use of Python as a teaching language. Prior to Olin College he was an IBM Fellow in IBM's Research Division, working on networked control system architecture. He was the project leader of the IBM Linux Wrist Watch project, and has been involved with the research project taking place at IBM's research labs. First at IBM and later at Lotus, he was named a Lotus Fellow for significant contributions in fields ranging from programming languages and operating systems to software standards and personal computer software. His early achievements included the establishment of an international standard for the APL language and the ACIS 4.2 operating system for IBM's first workstations. When the Open Software Foundation was created to produce a standard UNIX operating system, he became IBM's founding executive for this effort. More recently, he was a driving force behind the integration and unification of Lotus' product line and now is active in developing the next generation of "pervasive computing" technologies. He was named an "IBM Fellow" at IBM's TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York.
