Mr. Bruce Chittenden Mr. Bruce Chittenden Assistant Professor, Computer Science Location:Science and Technology120 Phone:757-727-5556 Expertise:Software Development, Operating Systems, Compilers, Formal Linguistics, Automata Theory

I spent the first 15 years of my career as a Software Engineering almost exclusively in the area of System Software. Over the past 25 years I have held the position of Vice President of Engineering at six High Tech Computer Start-up Companies from Silicon Valley to Fort Lauderdale. Two of these companies I took public in Initial Public Offering (IPO). The most notable of these companies was Citrix Systems.  I took Citrix Systems from a Start-Up Company to an S&P 500 and NASDAQ 100 Compnay as their VP of Engineering. As Vice President of Engineering at these companies I managed the patent process and secured well over 1,000 patents. I have published more than a dozen technical papers and I personally hold several patents in the area of Computer Science. I have a BS in Mathematics from the University of Missouri and a MS in Computer Science from the University of Hawaii.

Research Interests: Software Development, Operating Systems, Compilers, Formal Linguistics, Automata Theory
