About the Author

Ronald J. Leach recently retired as Professor and Chair Emeritus from the Department of Systems and Computer Science at Howard University, where he had taught since 1969. He received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Maryland at College Park and the M. S. degree in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University. His research interests include distributed systems, performance modeling and capacity planning; and most areas of software engineering, especially software reuse, fault-tolerance, and software performance measurement and their empirical foundations. Some of his current work includes the application of computing to the social sciences, especially in the area of name matching within historical documents, using both his computer search skills and genealogical knowledge. He is an experienced cruise ship lecturer, with special emphasis on identity theft and computer forensics.

Dr. Leach is the author of seven print books: Using C in Software Design, Academic Press, Advanced Topics in UNIX, John Wiley; Object-Oriented Design and Programming in C++, Academic Press, Software Reuse: Methods, Models, and Costs, McGraw-Hill, Introduction to Software Engineering, CRC Press, Genealogy for the Information Age, Disruptive Publishing, and Relative Genealogy, Disruptive Publishing. He has recently published an ebook entitled "Identity Theft in the Cyber Age," and is in the process of updating several of his other books that are currently available only in print versions.

Dr. Leach has offered technical training and seminars on software reuse, component-based development, software reengineering, and testing on three continents. He is also the author or co-author of more than one hundred technical papers. He recently developed a ten-hour video training course on Software Component Development with Visible Systems, Inc.
