Former HP CTO moves to academia
The former Georgia Tech student will serve as the new dean of the College of Computing.
DeMillo returned to Georgia Tech in August to become a professor and director of the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC). DeMillo got his doctorate in computer science from the school and had done an earlier stint as a teacher, which came to a close in 1987.
Before working at HP, DeMillo was general manager of the Internet Systems Group of Telcordia Technologies, the combined labs formerly called Bellcore that served the "Baby Bell" telephone companies spawned by the breakup of AT&T. He has also held jobs at the National Science Foundation, the office of the U.S. defense secretary and the University of Padua in Italy.
