Biographical Sketch

Dr. Thiruvathukal holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois. He attended there from 1988-1995, where he also completed the M.S. in 1990. His research from the very beginning was about object-oriented approaches to parallel programming and involved the development of object models, languages, libraries, and tools for parallel programming, mostly based on C and C++ on Unix platforms. This culminated in a system which I called Enhanced Actors, which was one of the first documented, working object-oriented libraries for parallel programming. Here is his list of publications.

In industry, Dr. Thiruvathukal worked as a member of the technical staff at Tellabs and R.R. Donnelley and Sons Technical (Research) Center. where he was a software development manager working in their Metromail division, which is now a part of Experian, on advanced research and development.

Dr. Thiruvathukal has co-authored two books with Prentice Hall PTR (part of the Pearson conglomerate) on high-performance Java computing and web programming in Python.  He has recently co-authored a book with Steven E. Jones (Department of English), which will appear in the MIT Press Platform Studies Series by late 2011/early 2012.

Dr. Thiruvathukal's research is and has been funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, DARPA, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. He has also received corporate support from Hostway Corporation in Chicago, Microsoft Corporation, and Hewlett-Packard.
