Portrait image of David Farber

David Farber

The Farber cluster has been named in honor of David Farber, UD professor and Distinguished Policy Fellow in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Farber is one of the pioneers who helped develop the U.S. Department of Defense’s ARPANET into the modern Internet. His work on CSNET, a network linking computer science departments across the globe, was a key step between the ARPANET and today’s Internet. Today, Farber’s work focuses on the translation of technology and economics into policy, the impact of multi-terabit communications, and new computer architecture innovations on future Internet protocols and architectures. He was named to the Internet Society’s board of trustees in 2012.
