Dr. Jeffrey Childs holds a Bachelor’s Degree (Summa cum laude) in Computer Science from Youngstown State University, OH, and a Master’s and Ph. D. in Computer Science from Kent State University, OH. He had conducted research in the Gaussian decomposition of images and has written and published several papers on the subject. He has discovered the Quickstep algorithm, having a much better time complexity than the existing algorithms for Gaussian decomposition. He has taught data structures for the past nine years. In addition, he has researched data structures during the last three years, breaking new ground in client-based design pedagogy and memory management, as well as the design of certain data structures. He is currently a tenured professor at Clarion University of Pennsylvania.
