### Summary of Professional Activities

Has conducted research in Computational Complexity (algebraic complexity, VLSI complexity); Computer Graphics (surface reconstruction, BSP tree algorithm); Database, Knowledge-based Systems, and Data Mining (concurrency control, relational discrete event systems, Pincer-Search algorithm); Parallel and Distributed Systems (parallel algorithms, compilation for special-purpose parallel machines, reliable parallel computations on LANs and the WWW, metacomputing, Calypso, MILAN, and Charlotte systems, routing in mobile ad-hoc networks); Internet Traffic Analysis, and Quantum Physics. Research reported in more than 50 scientific, peer- reviewed publications.

Recent research on Quantum Physics was published in Entropy, Volume 24, Issue 10 (October 2022), where On Quantum Entropy (D. Geiger and Z.M. Kedem) was selected as the cover article out of 184 candidates.

Has obtained more than $10,000,000 in research funding, as a Principal or Co-principal Investigator, from: Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Security Agency (NSA), National Science Foundation (NSF), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Intel, Microsoft, and Sun Microsystems.

Has served on research funding and review panels for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), and National Science Foundation (NSF). Has served on program committees of scientific conferences and on editorial boards of scientific journals. Currently serving as Editor in Chief of the ACM Computing Classification System Update Project.

Has taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in Computer Science spanning theory and practice, including Analysis and Design of Algorithms, Applied Cryptography and Network Security, Discrete Structures, Combinatorics, Computational Complexity, Database Systems, Data Mining, Distributed Algorithms and Systems, and Mathematical Techniques in Computer Science. Guided more than 15 doctoral dissertations. Has a total of more than 200 doctoral descendants.
