Fourteen African American Ph.D. Researchers in Computer Science


During Black History month 2009 Portland State University computer science professor Bryant York profiled 14 African-American males who are doing advanced research in computer science. These brothers are doing extraordinary research in everything from Network Security to Visual Data Mining. The 14 combined have over $32 million in research grant funding. I had the pleasure of hearing one of the brothers on the list by the name of Dr. Brian Blake at Georgetown University speak a week ago at the Tapia Computing Conference in Portland, OR during the Google session. He provided some excellent insight into resume/CV writing.

Also, a separate document about African American women researchers in Computer Science is being developed by a colleague of Dr. Bryant York. I will keep you posted on its development.
