He is a professor of computer science at Dartmouth College and former Chairman of the Dartmouth College Department of Computer Science. Between 2004 and 2008 he directed the Dartmouth College Writing Program.[2] His research interests are algorithm engineering, parallel computing, speeding up computations with high latency.

Early life and education

Thomas H. Cormen was born in New York City in 1956. He grew up in Oceanside, New York.

He received his bachelor's degree summa cum laude in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Princeton University in June 1978.[3]

He then went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he earned his master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in May 1986 with a thesis on "Concentrator Switches for Routing Messages in Parallel Computers"[3] and his PhD with a thesis on "Virtual Memory for Data-Parallel Computing"[4] in February 1993.[3]

From July 2004 through June 2008, he was the director of the Dartmouth Institute for Writing and Rhetoric.
