Russel H. Taylor Named the Inaugural John C. Malone Professor
Russell H. Taylor, a Professor of Computer Science with joint appointments in Mechanical Engineering, Radiology, and Surgery, and Director of the Engineering Research Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology, has been named the John C. Malone Professor. John C. Malone will present the named professorship to Taylor at a dedication ceremony Wednesday, May 23. The Groundbreaking of Malone Hall, a new engineering building on Homewood Campus, will follow the Professorship Dedication.
Taylor, who has more than 35 years’ experience in the fields of computer science, robotics, and computer-integrated interventional medicine, received a Bachelor of Engineering Science degree from Johns Hopkins University in 1970 and a PhD in computer science from Stanford University in 1976. From 1976 to 1995, Taylor worked at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center, where he developed the AML robot language and managed the Automation Technology Department and, later, the Computer-Assisted Surgery Group.
In 1995, Taylor returned to Johns Hopkins as professor of computer science. Taylor has authored more than 300 peer-reviewed publications, 13 book chapters, and a book, and holds 30 U.S. patents. Among his numerous honors and awards are being named a Fellow of the IEEE, AIMBE, and the MICCAI Society, and receiving the IEEE Robotics Pioneer Award and the MICCAI Society Enduring Impact Award.
