Biography of Robert M. Switzer

Robert M. Switzer was born in Tennessee (USA) in 1940.

After majoring in mathematics at Harvard College, he completed his PhD at Stanford University in 1965. He spent 5 years as lecturer at the University of Manchester, England, and then moved to Goettingen, Germany, where he has been Professor of Mathematics since 1973. In the early 1980s his research concentrated on obstruction theory in connection with holomorphic bundles on projective spaces.

In 1984 he switched his attention to Computer Science and has been teaching and working in that field ever since.
