Dr. Richard Guy is a member of the File Mobility Group (FMG) and a graduate lecturer in the Computer Science Department at UCLA. This File Mobility Group conducts state-of-the-art funded research in the areas of replicated and secure file systems for mobile computing. Recently completed and ongoing important research includes:

Large-Scale Filing and Data Management Environments (Ficus). Funded by DARPA.
Secure, Bilateral, Replicated Distributed Filing (Truffles and User-Level Truffles). Funded by DARPA.
Transparent Virtual Mobile Environment (Travler) Funded by DARPA.
Semantic Clustering. Funded by a gift from Microsoft Research.
Peer Agent Negotiation and Deployment of Adapters (Panda). Funded by DARPA.

Prior to joining the File Mobility Group, Dr. Guy served as Information Technology Advisor, Office of the Governor, Guam. In this capacity, he advised numerous Government of Guam agencies with respect to planning, design, and implementation of large-scale information systems, including multi-hundred node client-server environments, and both turnkey and in-house custom development projects ranging in cost from $500K to $5M. Planning included identifying technical personnel needs, training assessments for end users, and operations budgeting. Additionally, Dr. Guy served as liason for development of a newly created Bureau of Information Technology, a government-wide planning and coordination agency.

In this same capacity of Information Technology Advisor, Dr. Guy supervised the design and implementation of a 50-node mixed platform (MacOS and Windows 3.1), multi-protocol (AppleTalk and TCP/IP), and multi-media (10BaseT, 10Base2, and Token Ring) local area network for internal use within the Governor's Office; this network is bridged to the Government of Guam Internet, and to the global Internet.

In addition to his aforementioned assignment as Information Technology Advisor, Dr. Guy also served as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, University of Guam. In this capacity, he oversaw the implementation of an undergraduate program in Computer Science and taught 13 to 14 courses in the core Computer Science program curiculum. By 1995, he had nurtured the program into the largest major in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). Dr. Guy served as advisor for the student computer society and coordinated the CAS computer laboratory. He designed/installed the first department-wide LAN and multi-building backbone Ethernet and became technical advisor to Plant Management engineers for campus-wide fibernet planning. He also chaired and/or served on numerous university technical, curriculum, and administrative committees.

Dr. Guy received his undergraduate degree from Loma Linda University (Computing/Mathematics) in 1981, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from UCLA (Computer Science) in 1987 and 1991.
