Sally Floyd: Biography

Sally1 I received a B.A. in Sociology, with a minor in mathematics, from UC Berkeley in 1971. After that, while remaining active in the Berkeley world of the late 60's and early 70's, I learned electronics at the local community college, and worked for eight years as a computer systems engineer for the computers that run the BART trains. I returned to graduate school at UC Berkeley in 1984, and received a Master's degree in computer science in 1987, and a Ph.D. in 1989. I mostly studied theoretical computer science in graduate school, and my Ph.D. was in the subfield of computational learning theory.

After graduate school, I spent nine years working in the Network Research Group at LBNL, and I joined ICIR (the ICSI Center for Internet Research) at ICSI (International Computer Science Institute) in February 1999. For the three years from 1999 to 2001 we were named ACIRI, the AT&T Center for Internet Research at ICSI, and were funded by AT&T.
