- Ran Libeskind-Hadas
Ran Libeskind-Hadas is a professor of
Computer Scienceat Harvey Mudd College. His research interests lie in the fields of algorithm design and analysis and complexity theory, but focus more specifically on routing algorithms for optical networks and collective communication in parallel computers and networks.

Libeskind-Hadas graduated from Harvard University with a degree in
Applied Mathematicsin 1987. He went on to complete an M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaignin 1993. In August of that year he was hired into the Department of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, a liberal arts school that focuses on science and engineering. He has been in the Department of Computer Science since May 1994, and served as acting chair of the department in 2006-2007.
Libeskind-Hadas holds the Joseph B. Platt Endowed Chair for effective teaching from 2005 to 2010. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation. [ [http://www.hmc.edu/newsandevents/PlattChair2005.html Announcement by President Jon Strauss] , March 4, 2005] Most recently, he has been the director of an NSF
Research Experiences for Undergraduates(REU) site at Harvey Mudd College, which has allowed Harvey Mudd to greatly increase the number of undergraduate research students it can support during the summers, in addition to increasing cross-university interactions.

Module orientation problem
Libeskind-Hadas has produced noted research in the "nodule orientation problem", a branch of computer science important in design of large scale
integrated circuits. [ [http://books.google.com/books?id=9kXM8wd8ULgC&pg=PA209&lpg=PA209&dq=%22ran+libeskind+hadas%22&source=web&ots=b_nEI3t6tE&sig=B1BjSpBmC_Gjc-yDhn2zcWGj2Lw Yoshiyasu Takefuji, "Neural Network Parallel Computing"(1992) Springer Publishing ISBN 079239190X] ]
Libeskind-Hadas is a coauthor of R. Libeskind-Hadas, N. Hasan, J. Cong, P. McKinley, and C. L. Liu. "Fault Covering Problems in Reconfigurable VLSI Systems. " Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1992., and has published 16 peer reviewed papers and 20 peer-reviewed conference proceedings.
