Paul Ward was born in England and moved to Canada over 20 years ago. You wouldn't know that by his accent. While in Canada he has been very productive, and now has five children (his now ex-wife decided to downsize the family early in the Great Recession by leaving). In between producing children he acquired various degrees, including a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick in 1988 and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo in 2002. Somehow he also managed to work, and is, at least partially, responsible for those annoying electronic parking meters to which you may have needed to feed money. If it's any consolation, he does feel a little guilty about them. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, where he enjoys what he does very much and has a deathly fear that at some point someone is going to tell him to stop and do some real work.
Dr. Paul A.S. Ward is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, where he teaches senior undergraduate and graduate courses in distributed systems, operating systems, and computer networks. His core research expertize is in systems management and dependable systems, with a focus on cost reduction through self-management, though he is broadly interested in all aspects of distributed systems and various aspects of computer networks. His recent work has centered on the development of run-time behavioural models of systems for the purpose of anomaly detection, fault localization and diagnosis, and self-recovery. He has worked extensively in and with industry, and his research has been funded, and used by, IBM, Microsoft, Nortel, and Sandvine. Dr. Ward received a BScEng in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. He is a member of the ACM and the IEEE, including the Computer and Communications Societies, as well as a Professional Engineer.
