Computer Scientists' Research Focuses on Bioinformatics, Security 

Using Computers to Understand Biological Systems

Computer Science Chair and Associate Prof. Jing Hu brings cutting-edge research experience in bioinformatics, data mining and machine learning to the Department of Computer Science.  His goal is to develop computational models to address challenges in understanding biological systems.  


Security and Privacy in the Modern, Mobile Age

Assistant Prof. Ed Novak’s research targets  security and privacy on smart mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablet computers.  “Because these devices are now ubiquitous in the modern world, the security and privacy concerns are much greater than that of the ‘personal computers’ of the 80's and 90's."
