Short Biography

Prof. Goodrich received his B.A. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Calvin University in 1983 and his PhD in Computer Science from Purdue University in 1987.

He is a Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Irvine, where he has been a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science since 2001. In addition, he currently serves as Technical Director for the ICS Center for Algorithms and Theory of Computation. He was a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University from 1987 to 2001.

Dr. Goodrich's research is directed at the design of high performance algorithms and data structures with applications to information assurance and security, the Internet, machine learning, and geometric computing. He has pioneered and led research on efficient solutions to a number of fundamental problems, including sorting, convex hull construction, nearest-neighbor searching, linear programming, privacy-preserving data access, network traceback, and data authentication. His research has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Defense, including the Army Research Office (ARO), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DAPRA)

With over 350 publications, including several widely-adopted books, his recent work includes contributions to efficient and secure distributed data structures, information privacy, social networks, and cloud security. He has served as a scientific consultant to AT&T, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and the National Science Foundation. He has experience as an expert witness in cases involving algorithms, cryptography, computer security, digital rights management (DRM), graphical user interfaces (GUIs), machine learning, networking and distributed computing, software, hospitality industry technology, audio/video processing, databases, and storage technologies. He is an ACM Distinguished Scientist, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), a Fulbright Scholar (with senior specialist service in Denmark), a Fellow of the IEEE, and a Fellow of the ACM. He is a recipient of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award, the Brown Univ. Award for Technological Innovation, and the Pond Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. Recently, he was elected as a foreign member of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters.

His Erdős number is three (3), here's why.
