Three years ago, he signed on as head of NVIDIA Research and Chief Scientist, taking a two-year¬*leave¬*from Stanford University, where he‚??d been chairman of the computer science department. Following this tour of duty, he returned just over¬*a¬*year ago to academia. Although his Stanford obligations prevented¬*him¬*from retaining his research duties here,¬*Bill¬*continued to serve as Chief Scientist.

‚??While I love teaching and I love Stanford, I love NVIDIA more,‚?? Bill said in a note to NVIDIA colleagues. ‚??The opportunity to be part of an all-star team that is developing products that will change the world is too great to pass up, so I‚??m back in the saddle at NVIDIA Research.‚??

Bill is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences and a Fellow of the IEEE and the ACM. In 2010, he received the Eckert-Mauchly Award, considered the highest prize in computer architecture.

NVIDIA co-founder Chris Malachowsky had been serving as head of NVIDIA Research in the interim and will step back from those duties.
