RFC 1336:

David Clark works at the M.I.T. Laboratory for Computer Science, where he is a Senior Research Scientist. His current research involves protocols for high speed and very large networks, in particular the problems of routing and flow and congestion control. He is also working on integration of video into packet networks. Prior to this effort, he developed a new implementation approach for network software, and an operating system (Swift) to demonstrate this concept. Earlier projects include the token ring LAN and the Multics operating system. He joined the TCP development effort in 1975, and chaired the IAB from 1981 to 1990. He has a continuing interest in protocol performance. He is also active in the area of computer and communications security.

David Clark received his BSEE from Swarthmore College in 1966, and his MS and PhD from MIT, the latter in 1973. He has worked at MIT since then.
