Empowering Leadership: Computing Scholars of Tomorrow Alliance


Dorian Arnold is an assistant professor in Department of Computer Science at University of New Mexico. His research focuses on the performance and reliability of extremely large scale systems with tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even millions of processing elements. Dorian earned his Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin, where he developed MRNet with Phil Roth and their advisor, Barton Miller. He received M.S. and B.S. degrees from the University of Tennessee and Regis University. Dorian also worked in the Innovative Computing Laboratory, directed by Dr. Jack Dongarra, as technical lead of the NetSolve project, which won an R&D Top 100 award in 2000. As a student scholar at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Dorian (in collaboration with LLNL researchers) developed the Stack Trace Analysis Tool for effectively debugging large scale applications.

On a personal note, Dorian is originally from Belize and his wife, Jay, is from Guam. They have two awesome kids, Denice and DJ. Apart from his family (and CS of course) his greatest loves are sports (particularly basketball) and loud music (particularly dancehall reggae).
