CIS Welcomes New Faculty: Bo Ji, Sudhir Kumar, Karl Morris, Avinash Srinivasan
CIS welcomes several new faculty this year. The new faculty will have a significant impact on our teaching and research programs and also enable us to further strengthen the mobile computing and security components of our programs.
Bo Ji joined CIS as Tenure-Track Assistant
Professor, beginning in the Fall 2014 semester. Dr. Ji received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2012, and his B.E. and M.E. degrees both in Information Science and Electronic Engineering from Zhejiang University, China in 2004 and 2006, respectively. Prior to joining Temple University, he was a Senior Member of the Technical Staff at AT&T Labs, San Ramon, CA.
Dr. Ji's research interests are in the modeling, analysis, control, and optimization of complex network systems, such as communication networks, cloud computing systems, datacenter networks, software defined networks, smart grid networks, and cyber-physical networks. He has published several papers in premier journals and conferences in the area of communications and networking, including the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and the IEEE INFOCOM. He has served as Session Chair for MobiHoc 2014 and MSCC 2014.
Karl Morris joins CIS as Assistant Professor
(Teaching/Instructional). Dr. Morris received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Florida International University (FIU) in 2014 where his research was in the area of Software Engineering with an emphasis on model-driven development, middleware, and adaptable systems. His current research interests include mobile computing and cyber-physical systems. He received both his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from FIU in 2005 and 2011 respectively.
Previously, Dr. Morris has been a project manager and consultant, application developer, and systems analyst. He has a strong interest in mobile applications and is the co-founder of a mobile app development company. Dr. Morris has initiated the development of several mobile computing courses, already being taught during the 2014 - 2015 academic year.
Avinash Srinivasan joined theDepartment of Computer and Information Sciences as Associate Professor
(Teaching/Instructional). Prior to Temple, he was a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University (GMU) from 2012-2014. At George Mason, he spearheaded the initiative of establishing an Education Partnership Agreement with DoD Cyber Crime Center and served as the Program Manager. Dr. Srinivasan was also a Co-PI at GMU on a DHS grant for Graduate Fellowship Training for Homeland Security. Before joining GMU, he was an Assistant Professor of Computer Forensics at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania (BloomU), where he was key to two federal grants from DoED and DoJ. He was also instrumental in establishing the "PA Center for Digital Forensics" at BloomU. He earned his B.E. (Industrial Production, 1999) from University of Mysore (India) with Honors and M.S. (Computer Science, 2003) from Pace University (NY), with Distinguished Achievement Award for Academic Excellence. He received Ph.D. in Computer Science from Florida Atlantic University (FL) in August 2008.
Dr. Srinivasan's research interests broadly span the areas of Security and Digital Forensics with primary focus in network security and forensics, forensic file carving, cloud security and forensics, mobile device forensics, malware characterization and reverse engineering, and information hiding and antiforensics. He has published 32 refereed papers in scholarly conferences and journals, including IEEE INFOCOM, ACM SAC, IEEE ICC, IEEE ICDCS Workshop, IEEE MALWARE and won the Best Paper Award at ICITST 2012, London.
Dr. Srinivasan brings to Temple over 450 hours of formal training in Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics. He has close working relationships with both industry and law enforcement (LE) agencies. Since 2008, Dr. Srinivasan has trained LE officers and civilians in various cybersecurity and digital forensics topics includingNetwork Forensics, Macintosh Forensics, and Ethical Hacking & Pen Testing. Dr. Srinivasan is a member of NIST Working Groups on Cloud Computing Forensics Science and Cloud Computing Security. He has developed several new security and digital forensics courses that have been introduced at Temple during 2014 - 2015, and has spearheaded the development of a Certificate Program in Computer Security and Digital Forensics.
Sudhir Kumar joins CIS as a Carnell
Professor. His primary appointment is in the Department of Biology and he is the founding director of the Institute for Genomics and Evolutionary Medicine (iGEM). Dr. Kumar uses informatics as primary research tool to discover biological patterns and to make predictions in subject matters spanning the tree of life to the diagnosis of disease mutations. He has developed many algorithms, statistical methods, computer software, and web databases in biology and genomics. Recently, Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch designated him the Most Highly Cited Researcher in Computer Science in the last 10 years. Dr. Kumar has written over 150 papers, including many citation classics and hot papers. Dr. Kumar was elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for exemplary contributions in evolutionary bioinformatics, particularly in developing high-impact comparative analysis software for biologists and in illuminating the evolutionary dynamics of mutations and species through comparative genomics. He would like iGEM to catalyze strong collaborations across departments and colleges by embarking on new cross-cutting research project and recruiting faculty members in genomics, bioinformatics, and computational biology.
