Cal Newport graduated from Dartmouth College, earned his Ph.D. from MIT in 2009 and is now an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University where he explores the theoretical foundations of our digital age. He also writes about the impact of these technologies on the world of work. His most recent book, ‘Deep Work’ argues that focus is the new I.Q. in the knowledge economy and that individuals who cultivate their ability to concentrate without distraction will thrive. On publication, ‘Deep Work’ became an instant Wall Street Journal bestseller. Cal’s previous book, ‘So Good They Can’t Ignore You’ argues that “follow your passion” is bad advice.
