My focus is using evolutionary theory to understand human behavior. My current research chiefly addresses sex differences in motivation, especially in sports.
Distinguished professor of computer science at Naval Postgraduate School. Past president of ACM. Past editor in chief of Communications of ACM. Currently editor of ACM Ubiquity. Author of ten books, most recent Great Principles of Computing (MIT Press 2015). Author of over four hundred scientific papers and articles.
My research has covered a range of topics, including human-computer interaction, information visualization, bioinformatics, universal usability, security, privacy, and public policy implications of computing systems. I am currently working on a variety of NIH-funded projects, including areas such as bioinformatics research portals, visualization for review of chart records, and tools for aiding the discovery of animal models of human diseases.
Research interests focus on biodiversity patterns (character, distribution, species relationship) and their ecological and evolutionary mechanisms, using agricultural and forestry insects as research models. Multiple research approaches from different fields are recruited, including biodiversity, molecular phylogenetics, evolutionary biology, ecology, biogeography, genomics, and bioinformatics. Also interested in biodiversity data sharing related issues and policies.
