William and Sue Gross Professor of Computer Science and Professor of Biochemistry, Duke University

Bruce Donald received his B.A. from Yale University, and Ph.D. from MIT. He then joined the faculty of the Cornell University Computer Science Department, where he held a joint appointment in Applied Mathematics. Donald co-founded the Cornell Robotics and Vision Laboratory. He received a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1989. After a decade on the Cornell faculty, Donald joined the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth in 1997, and was named the Joan and Edward Foley Professor in 2003. He moved to Duke in 2006.

Donald has written four books and numerous scientific papers on topics ranging from robotics to physical geometric algorithms, graphics, MEMS, and computational biology. He was a visiting professor at Stanford University (1994-96). From 1995-97, Donald worked at Interval Research Corporation (in Palo Alto), where he was co-inventor of Embedded Constraint Graphics (ECG).

Donald was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2001, for his work on algorithms for high-throughput structural molecular biology. He was a Visiting Scientist at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab and Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (2000-2001).
