CSE at UNT | Computer Science and Engineering


Welcome to Fall 2017

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering welcomes students and faculty to Fall 2017!  We welcome these new faculty members joining our CSE Department.

Dr. Xuan Guo joins CSE as an Assistant Professor. He has been a postdoctoral research associate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory since 2015, when he graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Georgia State University. His research areas are bioinformatics (computational biology, machine learning and data mining) and HPC (cloud computing, distributed computing and big data analytics).

Dr. Kirill Morozov will join UNT as an Associate Professor in Spring 2018. In 2005-2016, Dr. Morozov worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Tokyo; then in 2006-2010 as a research scientist at the National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology in Japan; then as assistant and later associate professor at Kyushu University in Japan. He received his Ph.D in Computer Science from University of Aarhus, Denmark, and focuses his research on cybersecurity and cryptography.

Dr. Qing Yang comes to UNT as an Assistant Professor. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2011 from Auburn University and then joined the Gianforte School of Computing at Montana State University where he was recently recommended for tenure and promotion to Associate Professor. His research focuses on the Internet of Things, vehicular networks, trustworthy social networks, network security and privacy. Dr. Yang is currently PI on an NSF EAGER grant.
Please check this website and the student email newsletters that we'll be sending out during the semester for information on our planned activities this semester. Good luck with all of your classes!
