Dr. Mark G. Karpovsky has been Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Director of the Reliable Computing Laboratory since 1983. He conducts research in the areas of new techniques for design of reliable multiprocessors, networks of workstations and local area networks, routing in computer and communications networks, testing, and diagnosis of computer networks combining on-line and off-line techniques for error detection and/or location, and fault-tolerant message routing for computer networks. Dr. Karpovsky teaches graduate courses on interconnection networks, computer hardware testing, fault-tolerant computing, and error-correcting codes.
Dr. Karpovsky received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 1961, 1963 and 1967, respectively. He has been Visiting Professor at the University of Dortmund and Ecole National Superieure des Telecommunication, Paris. Dr. Karpovsky has been a consultant for IBM, Digital Corp., Honeywell, and AT&T, and is currently Director of the Reliable Computing Laboratory. He has published more than 140 papers and several books in the areas of logic design, testing and diagnosis, fault-tolerant computing and error-correcting codes. Dr. Karpovsky is a Fellow of the IEEE
