Gary M. Weiss
Associate Professor and Associate Chair for Graduate Studies
Degree: Ph.D., Rutgers University
Web Page: http://www.cis.fordham.edu/faculty/Gary-Weiss.html
Research Area(s): My primary research focus are in the area of machine learning and
data mining. More generally, I am interested in all areas of artificial
intelligence. Currently I am working on methods for improving data
data mining methods by better handling real-world considerations
(e.g., highly skewed class distributions). In the past I have done
research on expert systems and object-oriented programming.
Arthur G. Werschulz
Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies (LC) and Professor
Degree: Ph.D., Carnegie-Mellon University
Web Page: http://www.cis.fordham.edu/faculty/Arthur-Werschulz.html
My research area is information-based complexity, which deals with the
complexity of problems for which the available information is partial,
possibly contaminated by error, and priced. I am especially
interested in the complexity of partial differential equations and
Assistant Professor and Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies (RH)
Degree: Ph.D., University of Massachusetts, 2007
Web Page: http://www.cis.fordham.edu/faculty/Ellen-Zhang.html
Research Area(s): My primary research focus is in the area of computer networks and
distributed systems. In particular, I am interested in studying
challenged networks such as Disruption Tolerant Networks from the aspects of
performance modeling of epidemic style routing, and modeling
studies of real mobility traces.
Coordinator of MS in Cybersecurity Program
Degree: Ph.D., Queensland University of Technology, Australia
Web Page: http://www.cis.fordham.edu/faculty/Sajal-Bhatia.html
Research Area(s): Dr. Bhatia’s research interests revolve around network security in general and Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack, critical infrastructure security and intrusion detection in particular. His Ph.D. thesis focused on designing techniques for efficiently detecting a large variety of DDoS attacks and reliably distinguishing them from benign surges in network traffic, also known as Flash Events, sharing similar characteristics to DDoS attacks.
