John Patrick Hayes is an Irish-American computer scientist and electrical engineer, the Claude E. Shannon Chair of Engineering Science at the University of Michigan.[1]


Hayes did his undergraduate studies at the National University of Ireland, Dublin, graduating in 1965. He went on to graduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, earning a master's degree in 1967 and a Ph.D. in 1970.[1][2] After working in The Hague for Shell for two years, he returned to academia, taking a faculty position at the University of Southern California in 1972, and then moving to Michigan in 1982.[1]


Hayes is the author of the books

Hayes has written extensively on the use of hypercube graphs in supercomputing,[3][4] He has also written highly cited research papers on fault-tolerant design,[5] reversible computing,[6] and stochastic computing.[7]

Awards and honors[edit]

Hayes became an IEEE Fellow in 1985 "for contributions to digital testing techniques and to switching theory and logical design",[8] and an ACM Fellow in 2001 "for outstanding contributions to logic design and testing and to fault-tolerant computer architecture."[9] In 2004, the University of Illinois department of electrical and computer engineering gave him their distinguished alumni award.[2]
