Ron Coleman

Professor of Computer Science


I completed my BS in Computer Science in 1983 (summa cum laude, class valedictorian) at The City College of New York, School of Engineering (CCNY) and my doctoral degree in Computer Science in 1990 (summa cum laude) at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering Polytechnic Institute (formerly Polytechnic University). I worked at AT&T Bell Labs as a software developer from 1984 to 1989 and an Advisory Engineer for IBM in the Supercomputing Systems Lab from 1989 to 1993, where I was part of a team that built a version of the supercomputer that would become Deep Blue, the chess machine. I went to work for Citigroup in 1993 as a software developer, analyst, and vice president in risk management technology and co-founded Informeta, LLC, a high-tech startup, in 2001. I joined Marist College in 2002.
