James Frew is currently employed as a Specialist in the Institute for Computational Earth System Science (ICESS), an independent research unit at UCSB, where he works on data systems issues for Earth science and digital library applications. He received his Ph.D. in Geography from UCSB in 1990. As part of his doctoral research, he developed the Image Processing Workbench, a freely-distributable set of software tools for remote sensing image processing, currently used for instruction and research at UCSB and elsewhere. Dr. Frew has served as both the Manager and the Acting Director of the Computer Systems Laboratory (ICESS's predecessor), and as the Associate Director of the Sequoia 2000 Project, a 3-year $14M multicampus consortium formed to investigate large-scale data management aspects of global change problems. Dr. Frew is currently a co-PI on the Alexandria Project (part of the NSF-NASA-ARPA Digital Libraries Initiative), directing the development of its Internet testbed. He also serves on several committees overseeing NASA's Earth Observing System data system activities.
