a computer scientist and, while affiliated with Thinking Machines Corporation, two times prize winner of the Gordon Bell award , in 1989 on Seismic data processing , and in 1993 on Modeling of a shock front using the Boltzmann equation . He was also involved in the StarTech massive parallel computer chess project for the CM-5 by primary author Bradley Kuszmaul under supervision of Charles Leiserson .
The code for move generation and checking illegal moves, which takes a total of 3.5% of the cycles, was optimized in assembly language by Ryan Rifkin under the direction of Mark Bromley of Thinking Machines Corporation. Before Ryan worked on that code, the move generation and illegal move checking accounted for about 9% of all the cycles.
