Visiting Associate Professor
Department of Computer Science
Dr. Kruk wandered for years studying physics, computer science,engineering and philosophy in Montreal in the seventies, and then entered the industrial world to spend a decade designing optimization software, telecommunication protocols and real-time controllers.
After a last industrial post at Bell-Northern Research in the early nineties, Dr. Kruk spent the last twenty years as mathematics and computer science instructor at Waterloo, Wilfrid-Laurier, Oakland and finally American University.
His current research interests still bear the stamp of practicality enforced by years in industry: design and implementation of algorithms for semidefinite programming, scheduling, feasibility and the related numerical linear algebra and analysis.
