Prem Devanbu started off in Industrial software development, first at Perkin-Elmer; then at Bell Labs, first in software development and then in research, at Murray Hill, NJ; with the big travestyture, Devanbu went to AT&T Labs Research in Florham Park. Devanbu have been at UC Davis since late 1997. His undergraduate education was at IIT, Madras in India; his doctoral work was done under Prof. Borgida at Rutgers University in the Garden State,which is a lovely place, actually; although the Golden State also has much to offer .
