Gary M. Weiss
Associate Professor and Director of the MS Program in Computer Science
Degree: PhD, Rutgers University
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 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
Degree: PhD, Carnegie-Mellon University
Research Area(s): 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 integral equations.

Xiaolan Zhang
Assistant Professor
Degree: PhD, University of Massachusetts, 2007
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.
