Gary HolnessGary Holness

Associate Professor of Computer Science, Clark University

Gary gets an absolute thrill from building things; that is bringing ideas, theories, and algorithms to life! He focuses on the investigation, design, and algorithmic realization of models that endow computing machines and systems with the ability to sense, interpret and act upon the content of their environment. His work ranges from theoretical to applied including the development of new mathematical models, algorithms for pattern recognition, computational approaches and architectures in support of intelligent systems, prototype systems, and experiments.

His career includes 11 years in academia at Delaware State University over which he has supervised 32 undergraduate, 11 M.S., and 2 PhD student research projects. Also at DSU he contributed to the redesign of two undergraduate curricula, the BS in Computer Science and the BS in Information Technology, made significant contributions to the design and launch of a new graduate program, the MS in Computer Science, and served as the inaugural graduate program director.
