Miller Puckette received his B.S. in mathematics from MIT in 1980. As an undergraduate he was the top scorer in the 1979-1980 William Lowell Putnam mathematics competition. He was awarded Putnam and NSF fellowships for graduate study at Harvard, where he finished his Ph.D. in 1986. From 1979 through 1986 Puckette also studied computer music at the MIT Media Lab, specializing in real-time techniques for live music performance. From 1986 until 1994 he was on the research staff at IRCAM in Paris, where he worked on a wide variety of synthesis and audio processing techniques. Out of this work came the MAX computer program, whose MacIntosh version (1990) has been commercialized by Opcode Systems, Inc, and won Keyboard Magazine's Software Innovation of the Year award. In September 1994 Puckette joined UCSD where he is now professor of music. Puckette's current research interests are in human-machine interaction strategies, real-time audio analysis and synthesis, and sound spatialization.
