Dr. Garcia-Luna-Aceves currently leads research on ad-hoc and wireless networking for multiple industry and government clients at PARC. He is also a Jack Baskin Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he leads the Computer Communication Research Group dedicated to basic and applied research in computer communication. Dr. Garcia-Luna-Aceves also previously held roles in corporate R&D at Sun Labs and NOKIA.
My research is on the natural biogeochemical cycles of trace elements in the environment and the perturbation of those cycles by anthropogenic processes. Many of my studies investigate aquatic toxicology in fresh water and estuarine and marine ecosystems. Others address the toxicology of trace elements in ecosystems and humans.
Dr. Darrell D.E. Long is Professor of Computer Science. He holds the Kumar Malavalli Endowed Chair of Storage Systems Research and is Director of the Storage Systems Research Center.
He received his B.S. degree in Computer Science from San Diego State University, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego. His dissertation advisor was Jehan-François Pâris.
