Glenn Racine became the second S2ERC Fellow in November 2011. Glenn has been involved in the SERC, and now the S2ERC, for much of its history. Glenn retired in November 2010 from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, where he dedicated nearly three decades to working in a variety of leadership roles within the branches of network science, technology, and communications. Glenn most recently served as Chief of the Network Science Division, where he managed research and development in areas of Tactical Network Assurance, Cyber Security/Information Assurance, and Network Security Technology.
Glenn has been an Industrial Advisory Board member with the S2ERC on two separate tours of duty, from 1990 to 2000 and then again from 2006 to the present. He has been a strong advocate of and catalytic participant in the Center during both membership associations. In his time as an IAB member, Glenn secured funding for many projects, including the Design Metrics research, for which he also provided code for analysis from several Army programs, thus helping to assess the metrics applicability in identifying fault-prone modules. In the early '90s Glenn worked with Aditya Mathur (Purdue) on mutation testing, with Ahmed Elmagarmid (Purdue) on distributed databases, and with Norman Wilde (UWF) on Norm's software reconnaissance tool. In 2006, Glenn was instrumental in securing funding for the largest project in S2ERC history, the SMART project, which involved faculty from BSU, Purdue, and UIC, with several of the industrial affiliates serving as consultants. Glenn has also been involved in the S2ERC by making presentations at showcases, making a special trip to support the Center as it was reviewed by an NSF Software Program Manager in 2006, and even by making an appearance in a SERC promotional film.
