Dan Rockmore is Director of the Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College, and the William H. Neukom 1964 Distinguished Professor of Computational Science. He holds appointments in two academic departments, Mathematics, where he is also Chair, and Computer Science. Rockmore joined the faculty at Dartmouth College in 1991, after completing his undergraduate work at Princeton University and earning his Ph.D. at Harvard University. In 1995, he was one of 15 scientists awarded a five-year Presidential Faculty Fellowship from the White House for excellence in education and research. He is a member of the external faculty at the Santa Fe Institute and since 2005, he has directed its Complex Systems Summer School. The Institute is the pre-eminent center in the world for research in complex systems, the discipline that brings to bear computational methods for investigations into the structure of evolutionary phenomena.
