Before joining the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pittsburgh in the fall of 2010, Dr. John "Jack" Lange received his PhD and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Northwestern University (2006 and 2010). Prior to that he received a B.S. in Computer Engineering as well as a B.S. in Computer Science also from Northwestern University (2003).

His research specializes in High Performance Computing and Operating Systems, as well as networking, virtualization and distributed systems. His current focus lies in the area of specialized operating systems for supercomputing environments.
