Dexter and I work in very different areas in Computer Science, so I cannot attest to his successes in Computer Science as I am sure others so eloquently will. However, I was Dexter’s first PhD graduate, and I can certainly attest to his skills as a PhD advisor. Dexter actually arrived at Cornell after I started my PhD program. He had a buzz of electricity about him and that quality above all others initially attracted my interest. At that time Dexter was already an accomplished theoretician. I know that he has considerably burnished that already formidable reputation in the intervening decades. My story is a different one though, and it winds through the area of graphical user interfaces.
