John Hennessy
President of Stanford University

President John Hennessy produces speeches, memos, articles, and other types of writing as university president. But the president is also a professor, a highly regarded computer scientist. He has been the author or co-author of over one hundred scientific papers, as well as the co-author of two textbooks: Computer Organization and Design: The Hardware/Software Interface and Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach. Professor Hennessy initiated a project at Stanford to develop a simpler computer architecture known as RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer), and he has played a key role in taking this technology to industry, serving on several boards of directors. So, he is an experienced writer in the realms of science, business, administration, and educational policy, and we will gain unique insights on how he approaches such diverse writing tasks.
