James Hiram Morris (born 1941) is a professor of Computer Science. He was previously dean of the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science and Dean of Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley.[1]


A native of Pittsburgh, Morris received a Bachelor's degree from Carnegie Mellon University, an S.M. in Management from the MIT Sloan School of Management, and Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT.[2]

Morris taught at the University of California, Berkeley, where he developed some important underlying principles of programming languages: inter-module protection and lazy evaluation.[2] He was a co-discoverer of the Knuth–Morris–Pratt algorithm for string-search.[2]

For ten years, he worked at the Xerox PARC (Palo Alto Research Center), where he was part of the team that developed the Xerox Alto System.[2] He also directed the Cedar programming environment project.[2]

From 1983 to 1988, Morris directed the Information Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University, a joint project with IBM, which developed a prototype university computing system, the Andrew Project.[2] He has been the principal investigator of two National Science Foundation projects aimed at computer-mediated communication: EXPRES and Prep.[2]

He was a founder of the MAYA Design Group, a consulting firm specializing in interactive product design.[2] [3] [4]
