Paul B. Kantor is an American information scientist. He is Distinguished Professor of Information Science at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

Biography[edit]

Mr. Kantor was educated in Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University, where he took courses taught by Samuel Eilenberg, Tsung-Dao Lee, Jack Steinberger, Charles Townes, Polykarp Kusch and Melvin Schwartz. He earned a Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics at Princeton University, working with Sam Treiman. He has been a Fulbright Fellow, has received the ASIST Research award, and is a Fellow of the AAAS.

His research centers on the role of information systems for storage and retrieval in a wide range of applications, with particular emphasis on rigorous evaluation of the effectiveness of such systems.

At Rutgers he is a member of the Department of Library and Information Science, the Center for Operations Research RUTCOR, the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Computer Sciences DIMACS, Research Director for the CCICADA DHS Center, and a member the Graduate Faculty of the Department of Computer Science.
