He joined Intel in 1973 and was named its first Principal Engineer in 1979 and its fourth Intel Fellow in 1988. He is responsible for leading Intel's microprocessor, communications and systems technology labs and Intel Research. In 1989, he was named Scientist of the Year by R&D Magazine for his leadership in parallel and distributed computer architecture. In December 1996, he was featured as Person of the Week by ABC World News for his visionary work on the Department of Energy ASCI Red System, the first computer to sustain one trillion operations per second (one teraFLOPS) and the fastest computer in the world between 1996 and 2000. In 1997, he was honored as one of the Computing 200, the 200 individuals having the greatest impact on the U.S. computer industry today, and subsequently profiled in the book Wizards and Their Wonders from ACM Press. He has received two Intel Achievement Awards for his work in high performance computing and advanced cluster communication architecture.

Prior to joining Intel, he held positions with Hewlett-Packard Company and Xerox Corporation. He received bachelor's and master's degrees from Cornell University in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1970 and 1972, respectively. He is quoted as saying, "Imagine a phone that can translate languages in real time…, or finding a photo of your children playing with a pet from among thousands of photos… To deliver these capabilities in products that are easy to use and attractive to many people requires that we, as an industry, rethink our approach to platform development." - Spring 2005 Intel IDF
