Chiu C. Tan, Assistant Professor
Chiu Tan received his Ph.D. from the College of William and Mary in 2010. His research is in the area of cyber security, and his current research interests are in cloud computing security, smarthealth systems, and wireless network security (mainly 802.11, RFID, and sensor networks).
Dr. Tan's strong background in computer security has played an important role in several on-going projects, including an interdisciplinary project to design a wireless system for fetal health monitoring. He has published his research in leading journals and conferences, including the IEEE Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, INFOCOM, and ICDCS. He is the director for the NSF/DoD REU Site program at Temple.
Anwar Mamat, Assistant Professor (Teaching/Instructional)
Anwar Mamat received the Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2011. His research interests are grid and cluster computing, high- performance computing, and real-time systems.
Dr. Mamat's primary research area is to provide assured Quality of Service (QoS) for Cluster and Grid Computing through the development of new real-time scheduling theory and algorithms. His research results have been published in top-tier journals and conferences, including the journal of Real-Time Systems, Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC), RTAS, and ECRTS. He has both industry work experience and teaching experience at the university level. Before joining the CIS department at Temple, he worked at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at NIH, where he designed and developed non-SQL database systems.
Jie Wu named Carnell Professor
Jie Wu, chair and professor in the Department of Computer & Information Sciences, has been named Laura H. Carnell Professor of Computer Engineering by President Ann Weaver Hart and the Academic Affairs Committee of the Temple University Board of Trustees. Wu will be the fifth Carnell Professor in the College of Science and Technology. The appointment is effective July 1, 2012
Prior to joining CST, Wu was a program director at the National Science Foundation. From 1989 to 2009, he held an appointment in the Department of Computer Science at Florida Atlantic University,where he rose to the rank of Distinguished Professor. His research interests include wireless networks, mobile computing, routing protocols, fault-tolerant computing and interconnection networks. Wu’s publications include more than 550 papers in scholarly journals and conference proceedings.
Established in 1985 by the Temple University Board of Trustees, Carnell professorships honor Temple’s first dean, Laura H. Carnell, who worked alongside founder Russell H. Conwell from 1893 until his death in 1925, most of that time as Temple’s chief administrator.
“I am honored to be included among such a distinguished and inspiring group of academics within the College of Science and Technology and across Temple University,” says Wu.
