Background

After graduating from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art with a bachelor's degree in architecture, I spent seven years initially working in architectural offices, and later, operating my own design and construction company. In 1980, for various reasons, I returned to school to change careers. I received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Hunter College and went on to the Courant Institute for Mathematical Sciences to work on my doctoral degree. At the “Courant”, I worked under the guidance of Elaine Weyuker, my advisor, and with much help from Martin Davis, to both of whom I am deeply grateful for sharpening my understanding of theoretical computer science and logic.
