Alan L. Tharp
Dr. Tharp's primary research interest is in the area of developing new and improved file structures. Of particular interest are structures which improve system performance and ones which allow new applications - tasks which were previously not doable because of a lack of appropriate data structures. He is also interested in database architectures, in improving the usability of software systems, and in computer science education.
Most recently, he has been interested in promoting the teaching of innovation (right-brain) skills to computer scientists and engineers. Successful market-pull innovation would not only provide processes, products, and services to improve the quality of life, but it would also create a significant number of jobs. Innovation does not end with an idea, but rather with the widespread adoption of the resulting product, process, or service.
