Lester Lipsky, Professor Emeritus at the University of Connecticut, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in computer science and engineering.

Dr. Lipsky entered his profession because he was led by Albert Einstein when he was an undergraduate and he decided that he would try to understand what he did. Dr. Lipsky had a thirst for knowledge and proved that by earning a BME from The City College of New York in 1956. After receiving his degree, he knew he wanted to learn more, so he took classes in physics at Brandeis University in 1958. From there he went on to earn his PhD in physics from the University of Connecticut in 1965.  Dr. Lipsky was not done with his need for more knowledge so he became a research fellow at the National Bureau of Standards from 1965 to 1966 and the Royal Holloway, University of London from 1966 to 1968.

The highlight of Dr. Lipsky’s career was his book, “Queueing Theory: A Linear Algebraic Approach,” which was published in 1992. Dr. Lipsky’s career began when he joined the University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty as an assistant professor for the department of computer science in 1968 and remained in that position until 1973 when he became an associate professor. He continued as an associate professor until 1976 when he earned the title of professor of the computer science and physics department. In 1987, he left Nebraska to become a professor of computer science and engineering at his alma mater, the University of Connecticut. There he remained on as a professor until 2007, when he obtained the title of professor emeritus, a position he still holds today. As a testament to his success, Dr. Lipsky has been inducted as a member of various esteemed associations, such as IEEE, Sigma Xi, Upsilon Pi Epsilon and the Association for Computing Machinery, among others.
