ServiceThere is a theory that says the faculty are not employees of the university; they are the university. Given that view, they are expected to run the university. They are also expected to run the research world. This work is called service.
Due to an inability to say "no" at strategic moments, I have served the university, the academic community, and the local community in a variety of ways. In particular, at the university I have served on the DACA of both ECE and CS, as well as various planning committees and sub-committees.
Within the wider academic community, I have reviewed papers for numerous conferences and journals, and have served on the program committee of CASCon 2004 and Networking 2005.
In the wider world, I am involved in a number of activities, notably Sunday School teaching and raising a somewhat over-sized family. If I could do anything I wanted to do, I'd probably be off somewhere reading a good book.
