Michael ("Jeff") Donahoo received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from
Baylor University in 1991 and 1993, respectively.
He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the
College of Computing at the Georgia Institute
of Technology in 1998. Upon graduation, he returned to Baylor University
to join the faculty of the School of Engineering
and Computer Science.
A major impediment to large-scale information access involves the
difficulties in handling the burgeoning demands on information
dissemination technologies. To truly achieve scale requires the
implementation of application-specific routing services that enable
efficient use of network resources, such as concast, multicast,
broadcast, subcast, and anycast. Unfortunately, the deployment of
such services at the network-layer seems unlikely due to volatile
policy and security barriers; therefore, Jeff's most recent work focuses
on circumventing these obstacles by providing appropriate services at
the application-layer in overlay network topologies. While this
approach promises significant improvement in overall scalability for
network and system resources, the effective use of such networking
services is by no means automatic. Jeff's research focuses on the
interplay among routing services, transport protocols, and information
dissemination problem domains with the intent to develop and point the
way to technologies that address the challenge of extending
traditional information dissemination applications to a world with
ubiquitous information expectations.

Series and Books
The Practical Guide Series,
published by Morgan-Kaufmann, targets
both the student and professional who has a general background in
programming. The series consist of very focused, relatively
fast-paced tutorial/reference books on various computing technologies.
The goal of these books is to give the busy professional or student
all of the elements and instruction needed to begin working with
specific technologies. Jeff created the series to provide focused,
inexpensive supplementary texts for classroom use. The series
(originally called the Pocket Series) started in 2000 and currently
includes several books, many of which Jeff co-authored. Jeff is also the
