Dr. Riley received his Ph.D. from the Georgia Tech College of Computing in August 2001, and joined the faculty of ECE at that time. Mr. Riley received a MSCS from Florida Tech in 1996, and a BSEE from University of Alabama in 1972.

Prior to enrolling at Tech in 1996, Mr. Riley was president and CEO of Infoware, Inc. of Cocoa Beach Florida. From 1987 to 1996 Infoware provided software and system design services to the United States Air Force at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida. During that time, Infoware designed, implemented, and deployed numerous systems in support the missile launch activities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, including a communications front-end processor for real-time data gathering and a real-time distributed flight safety display system. Concurrently, from 1984 to 2000, Mr. Riley was also vice-president and co-owner of CAM Systems Inc. of Atlanta Georgia. CAM systems developed, under Mr. Riley's direction, a suite of PC based software tools for residential property management.
