Dr. John Gilligan, Executive Associate Dean of the College of Engineering at NC State, recently announced that Dr. Douglas S. Reeves (pictured at right), professor in the Department of Computer Science and Assistant Dean for Graduate Programs in the College of Engineering at NC State University, has been promoted to Associate Dean for Graduate Programs in the College of Engineering, effective immediately.
Reeves has served as Assistant Dean since Fall of 2013.  As Assistant Dean, he has helped departments recruit a record number of high quality students, particularly at the PhD level, with the highest levels of support ever from the College and the Provost.  He has represented the College on the COE Graduate Studies Committee, the Administrative Board of the Graduate School and the Graduate Operations Council of the University.  He also assists the College with international partnerships, and his office works closely with the Graduate School in many ways.  The Associate Dean position is part-time, and Reeves will continue with his many duties in the Computer Science Department.

Reeves is a faculty member in Computer Science and was the Director of Graduate Programs in the Department of Computer Science from May of 2010 until December 2013, during which period graduate enrollment reached more than 600 students (including 180 PhD students).  Reeves and his students have published well over 100 papers in the areas of VLSI design, parallel and distributed computing, computer networking, and computer and network security. At NC State he has supervised the thesis of 20 PhD students and over 20 masters students. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the former Advanced Research and Development Activity, the Army Research Office, and other sources. He has served as chair or program chair of a number of conferences, and as a program committee member of dozens of conferences. 
His many honors include receiving the General Electric Doctoral Fellowship in 1985 and the Undergraduate Teaching Award from the Department of Computer Science at NC State in 1988, as well as being named the Professional Engineer of the Year by the Department of Computer Engineering and Computer Science in the Speed Scientific School at the University of Louisville in 2003.
Reeves received his BA in biology from Indiana University in 1975. He earned an MS in computer science/engineering from the University of Louisville in 1982. He earned a PhD in computer science from the Pennsylvania State University in 1987.
