About Jerrold Alan Landau
Jerrold has an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, and a masters of Industrial Engineering, where his thesis was written on the topic of Computerized Diagnosis of Dermatological Diseases. After graduation I worked at several smaller software firms, until joining IBM in 1990. I spent 7 years in the area of compiler development, and then 12 years in the area of business process modeling. My specialties are software test and globalization. Currently, I am working in the areas of process management and auditing, as well as R&D tax incentive programs at IBM.
As an amateur genealogist, I have researched and take great interest in all areas of my family, and am the nerve center of the 'geni' project for all branches of my family. I also engage in genealogical consultation, and do freelance work at translating works of European Jewish History (known as Yizkor books) from Hebrew and Yiddish into English.
