Daniel S. Katz is a Principal Member of the Information Systems and Computer Sciences staff at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology. Previous roles at JPL, which he joined in 1996, include: Supervisor of the Parallel Applications Technologies group which was originally part of the Exploration Systems Autonomy Section (367) and later became part of the Modeling and Data Management Systems Section (387), Area Program Manager of High End Computing in the Space Mission Information Technology Office, Area Program Manager for Dependable Computing in the Space Information Systems Technology Office, Applications Project Element Manager for the Remote Exploration and Experimentation (REE) Project, and Team Leader for MOD Tool (a tool for the integrated design of microwave and millimeter-wave instruments). From 1993 to 1996 he was employed by Cray Research (and later by Silicon Graphics) as a Computational Scientist on-site at JPL and Caltech, specializing in parallel implementation of computational electromagnetic algorithms.

His research interests include: numerical methods, algorithms, and programming applied to supercomputing, parallel computing, cluster computing, and embedded computing; and fault-tolerant computing. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D degrees in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, in 1988, 1990, and 1994, respectively. His work is documented in numerous book chapters, journal and conference publications, and NASA Tech Briefs. He is a senior member of the IEEE, designed and maintained (until 2001) the original website for the IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society, and serves on the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing's Executive Committee, the IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing's Executive Committee, and the steering committee for the IEEE Cluster conference series.
