Gabe Weaver Named Inaugural Dieckamp Fellow

Dr. Gabe Weaver received his PhD from Dartmouth in 2013. During his research career, Gabe has had stints at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory and as a non-residential fellow at Harvard, where he designed an XML vocabulary to encode Ancient Greek Mathematical diagrams. He more recently worked as a research scientist in Illinois' Information Trust Institute.

For his dissertation at Dartmouth College, Gabe created eXtended Unix tools (XUTools) to process a broader class of languages in which security-policies are expressed in the language-theoretic sense. XUTools allows practitioners to extract, count, and compare files in terms of high-level language structures found in modern markup, programming, and configuration languages. Articles on XUTools have been featured in news outlets such as ComputerWorld, CIO Magazine, Communications of the ACM, and Slashdot.
