Professor Morelli graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1969 with a B. A. in Mathematics.  He has an M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy, as well as an M. S. in Computer Science from the University of Hawaii.  He has been teaching at Trinity College since 1985, the same year the computer science major was first offered.  He is one of the Principal Investigators for the Humanitarian Free and Open Source Software (HFOSS) project, an NSF-funded effort to get undergraduates engaged in building free and open source software that benefits the public.  In summer 2011 a team of Trinity HFOSS students and faculty traveled to Haiti to build an open source mobile application that helps register and manage beneficiaries for a humanitarian aid organization.

Professor Morelli believes that Trinity College provides an ideal educational environment.  It provides an unique opportunity to teach, learn, and do research with bright, talented, and hard-working students.
