Two new faculty have joined the CIS Department beginning Spring 2014.
Krishna Kant has joined CIS as Professor. Dr. Kant was a research professor at the Center for Secure Information Systems at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA from 2010-2013. He also served as a program director in the CISE/CNS division of the National Science Foundation (NSF) from 2008-2013 where he ran the computer systems research (CSR) program and was actively involved in a number of other programs including Expeditions in Computing.
At NSF he also drove the NSF wide initiative on sustainability called SEES (science, engineering and education for sustainability) and received the Director’s Award for his efforts. His current areas of research include sustainability and energy issues in data centers, robustness in the Internet, and cloud computing security.
Prior to his NSF service, Professor Kant was with Intel Corporation where he worked on a variety of data center and server technologies. From 1991 to 1997, he held a consultant position at Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bellcore) and worked on many broadband and narrowband technologies, and SS7 signaling, congestion control, and error monitoring.
He was an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Pennsylvania State University prior to 1991, with research contributions in performance modeling and distributed systems. From 1981-1984 he was an assistant professor in the EECS department of Northwestern University.
He received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Sciences from University of Texas at Dallas in 1981. He is the author of the graduate text book Introduction to Computer System Performance Modeling, McGraw Hill 1992. He recently coedited handbook on securing cyberphysical infrastructures and advances in cloud computing security. He is a Fellow of IEEE.
Christopher Biehl has joined CIS as Instructor, beginning in the Spring 2014 semester. Chris' main professional interest is incorporating technology in the classroom and making it an integral part of the learning process. Other interests include ethics in technology, information security, web design, and social media trends. He has an extensive background in digital media, and in his free time, he enjoys photography.
