James Kaufman received his Ph.D. in Physics from UCSB, Santa Barbara, California, U.S.A. He joined IBM research in 1985. He is Manager on IBM Amaden Laboratory. He is Eclipse Committer and Project lead for the Spatio Temporal Epidemiological Modeler (STEM) Project. He also works on the International Modeling Efforts based on STEM, Public Health Information Exchange, OptimalGrid, The Social Contract Core, Tempus Fugit, etc. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). He is a distinguished Scienctist of the ACM. He is “Master Inventor” of IBM.
