What I enjoyed most about my time at Stanford is . . .
The engagement with students and all the great research they have done.

What is your favorite place at Stanford and why?

I love the covered quad areas, especially how the light can fall.

Point of Pride: Tell us briefly about an event, project, program or initiative you were involved with at Stanford that you're most proud of.

Developing Stanford's own Linux distribution with colleagues and seeing it become the established solution for a decade.

Leave your Legacy: What piece of guidance or advice would you give to a new hire to Stanford?
Research and teaching comes first. Always make sure the work you do helps keep that unfettered, and never hinders that.

So awesome!!
