Dr. Havill Honored with Benjamin Barney Chair

Faculty

The endowed Benjamin Barney Chair was established at Denison in the nineteenth century, and is held by a member of the Mathematics and Computer Science department. It was previously held by Dr. Joan Krone.

In his sixteen years at Denison, Dr. Havill, a Professor of Computer Science, has taught twenty different courses across the computer science curriculum. In 2012, he co-developed and co-taught, with a Biology colleague, Denison's first course in Computational Biology. He is currently writing a new introductory computer science textbook. Dr. Havill's research focuses on algorithm design and computational biology.

Last year, Dr. Havill was also awarded Denison's highest faculty award, the Charles A. Brickman Teaching Excellence Award.
