Richard M. Reese holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Texas A & M University and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering and Physics at Tarleton State University in Stephenville Texas. In addition to his experience in academia, Richard has over 16 years of experience in industry including operating system development at GTE Automatic Electric Labs and at Lockheed Martin in Fort Worth, Texas where he supervised a tool development group and oversaw various research and development projects.

Richard first worked with EJBs as a consultant/instructor of software languages in private and public classes providing him with a variety of insight into industry applications. He has published numerous papers and has developed courseware for a variety of topics including advanced Java technologies.
