Gary M. Weiss
Associate Professor and Associate Chair for Graduate Studies
Degree: Ph.D., Rutgers University
Web Page:
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.

Degree: Ph.D., University of Massachusetts, 2007
Web Page:
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.

Sajal Bhatia
Coordinator of MS in Cybersecurity Program
Postdoctoral Faculty

Degree: Ph.D., Queensland University of Technology, Australia
Web Page:
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.
