NOTE:The Center for Mobile Computing is now dormant, and this web site represents a historical view of its activities from 1996-2008. Although there is still mobile-computing research underway at Dartmouth, we no longer update the web site on a regular basis. Please contact Professor David Kotz with any inquiries about the CMC.

CMC Faculty and Staff

photo Professor Denise Anthony, Sociology Department, Dartmouth College
Denise Anthony is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at Dartmouth College, and Adjunctt Assistant Professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. Dr. Anthony.s research interests include collective action processes, economic sociology, organizational behavior and the sociology of health care. She studies mechanisms for producing cooperation, trust, and social capital among low-income entrepreneurs in micro-credit borrowing groups. She is now beginning to explore how trust affects communication and security in the digital environment of the Internet. She works with the PKI-Lab and the Center for Mobile Computing to explore the development and use of technology and institutional infrastructure for secure communication within and across wired and wireless computer networks. She is also studying inter-organizational communication between industry and government organizations during the national cyber-exercise, Livewire, sponsored by the Institute for Security and Technology Studies at Dartmouth. In health care, she has studied how organizational incentives and communication networks affect physician.s referral behavior and career satisfaction. In addition, she is exploring institutional change in the health care industry by studying variation in managed care practices across the industry, and variation in hospital utilization norms across regions with differing levels of health care intensity. Prior to her appointment at Dartmouth, Denise was a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Post-doctoral Scholar at the University of Michigan from 1997-1999. She has a PhD in Sociology (1997) from the University of Connecticut.

Andrew T. Campbell is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Dartmouth College, having joined Dartmouth in 2005 after several years in the COMET group at Columbia University. Andrew is working on emerging architectures and programmability for wireless networks. He received his PhD in Computer Science in 1996, and the NSF CAREER Award for his research in programmable mobile networking in 1999.

George is the Dorothy and Walter Gramm Professor of Engineering at Dartmouth College. He joined Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering in the fall of 1992. Prior to joining Dartmouth, he held positions at Tufts University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Cybenko received the B.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the University of Toronto and the M.Sc. and Ph.D degrees in the Applied Mathematics of Electrical and Computer Engineering from Princeton University in 1978. Cybenko was the Kloosterman Distinguished Visiting Professor at Leiden University, the Netherlands in 1996. He is the founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE/AIP Computing in Science and Engineering. Cybenko has pioneered research in several areas: signal processing, parallel computing, neurocomputing and mobile agent systems. His current research interest is distributed information systems.

David Kotz is the coordinator of CMC activities.
David Kotz is a Professor of Computer Science at Dartmouth College in Hanover NH. After receiving his A.B. in Computer Science and Physics from Dartmouth in 1986, he completed his Ph.D in Computer Science from Duke University in 1991. He returned to Dartmouth to join the faculty in 1991, where he is now Professor of Computer Science, Director of the Center for Mobile Computing, and Executive Director of the Institute for Security Technology Studies. His research interests include context-aware mobile computing, pervasive computing, wireless networks, and intrusion detection. He is a member of the ACM, IEEE Computer Society, and USENIX associations, and of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility.

photo Professor Sean Smith, Department of Computer Science
Associate Professor Smith has been working in information security---attacks and defenses, for industry and government---for over a decade. In graduate school, he worked with the US Postal Inspection Service on postal meter fraud; as a post-doc and staff member at Los Alamos National Laboratory, he performed security reviews, designs, analyses, and briefings for a wide variety of public-sector clients; at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, he designed the security architecture for (and helped code and test) the IBM 4758 secure coprocessor, and then led the formal modeling and verification work that earned it the world's first FIPS 140-1 Level 4 security validation. Dr. Smith has published numerous refereed papers; given numerous invited talks; and been granted nine patents. His security architecture is used in thousands of financial, e-commerce, and rights managements installations world-wide.

In July 2000, Sean left IBM for Dartmouth since he was convinced that the academic education and research environment is a better venue for changing the world. His current work, as PI of the Dartmouth PKI Lab, investigates how to build trustable systems in the real world.

Sean was educated at Princeton (B.A., Mathematics) and CMU (M.S., Ph.D., Computer Science).
