2004 - Ralph Coats Roe Medal
1995 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
1994 - ACM Fellow
1990 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Programming language, World Wide Web, Virtual machine, C.mmp and Software engineering. His work on Programmer, Alphard, Abstract data type and Correctness as part of his general Programming language study is frequently connected to Abstraction, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Abstract data type research integrates issues from Verification and Structured programming.
His work on Human–computer interaction expands to the thematically related World Wide Web. His work focuses on many connections between C.mmp and other disciplines, such as Minicomputer, that overlap with his field of interest in Software. William A. Wulf has included themes like Object and Kernel, Hybrid kernel in his Operating system study.
His primary areas of study are Programming language, Software engineering, Software, Compiler and Computer architecture. His Programming language course of study focuses on Low-level programming language and Specification language. His research in Software engineering intersects with topics in Virtual machine, Distributed computing, Software development, Software system and Social software engineering.
He combines subjects such as C.mmp and Set with his study of Software. His Compiler construction study in the realm of Compiler interacts with subjects such as Object code and Mathematical proof. His research in Computer architecture focuses on subjects like Hardware architecture, which are connected to Computer hardware.
William A. Wulf mostly deals with Computer security model, Computer security, Software engineering, Software and Hardware architecture. His Computer security study incorporates themes from Cyberspace and Security information and event management, Security through obscurity, Security testing. His Software engineering research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of User interface, Distributed computing and Software design.
The concepts of his Software study are interwoven with issues in Computer architecture and Unification. His Hardware architecture research incorporates elements of Computer hardware, Software development, Software construction, Decomposition and Embedded system. His study brings together the fields of Theoretical computer science and Programming language.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Computer security model, Virtual machine, Data science, Computer hardware and Uniform memory access. His Computer security model research focuses on Security through obscurity and how it connects with Security service, Distributed computing, Information security standards and Security convergence. His research in Virtual machine intersects with topics in User interface, Database, World Wide Web and Human–computer interaction.
His Data science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Domain, Instrumentation, Knowledge management, Collaboratory and The Internet. The study incorporates disciplines such as Compiler and Locality of reference in addition to Computer hardware. His studies deal with areas such as Vector processor, Memory refresh and Memory bandwidth as well as Uniform memory access.
