CSAIL researcher Gifford named ACM fellow

David K. Gifford, a professor of computer science and engineering, was among the 2011 fellows named by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The ACM bestowed the distinction on 46 of its members in a Thursday announcement.

Gifford, a member of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) who currently studies stem-cell-based developmental biology using predictive models based on computational methods, was cited for “contributions to distributed systems, e-commerce and content distribution.” He received his SB from the Institute in 1976 and his master’s and PhD from Stanford University.

The ACM fellows, selected from universities, corporations and research labs, were chosen for their contributions to computing that have provided fundamental knowledge to the computing field and generated multiple technology advances in industry, commerce, health care, entertainment and education.
