Interview with dr juan e gilbert clemson university

Juan E. Gilbert (born February 27, 1969) is an American computer scientist, researcher, inventor, and educator. A staunch advocate of diversity in the computing sciences, Gilbert's successful efforts to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the computing disciplines have been recognized by professional engineering organizations and the United States government. In honor of both his accomplishments and his service to the university, Gilbert was awarded the first Presidential Endowed Chair at Clemson University on November 9, 2012. As a result of Dr. Gilbert's efforts, in 2012, Clemson was home to 10% of the African American computer science professors, and 10% of the African American computer science doctoral students in the United States. In 2014, Dr. Gilbert left Clemson University and joined the Computer & Information Science & Engineering Department at the University of Florida where he serves as the Andrew Banks Family Preeminence Endowed Chair and the Chair of the department. Dr. Gilbert is the first African American chair of the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering at the University of Florida.
