I received a Ph.D. in Information and Computer Science at University
of California, Irvine in 1981. I have been on the faculty at USC
since 1981. I am the founding director of the USC ATRIUM Laboratory, which
research interests include knowledge-based systems for (re)engineering
complex business processes, CASE technologies for developing large heterogeneous
information systems, and organizational analysis of system development
projects. Dr. Scacchi is a member of ACM, IEEE, and AAAI. I am an active
researcher with more than 80 research publications, and numerous consulting
and visiting scientist postions with firms including AT&T Bell Laboratories,
Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation (MCC), Software Engineering
Institute at Carnegie-Mellon University, SUN Microsystems, Perceptronics,
Hewlett-Packard, and Andersen Consulting.
