CMC Staff

Here are some of the staff involved in CMC projects as of June 2007.

photo Apu Kapadia

Apu Kapadia received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and was the recipient of a four-year High-Performance Computer Science Fellowship from the Department of Energy. His doctoral research focused on trustworthy communication and models for privacy in pervasive environments. In October 2005, Apu joined ISTS as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow and is working with Profs. David Kotz and Sean Smith on topics related to location privacy, mobile computing, trust-worthy platforms, and public-key infrastructures.

Yong Sheng received the B.S. degree in Computer Engineering (1992, from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), Beijing, China), and the M.S. degree in Computer Engineering (1996, from BUPT). He finished his Ph.D in Computer Engineering in August 2006, working with George Cybenko at Dartmouth College, with a dissertation entitled ``The Theory of Trackability and Robustness for Process Detection''. Yong is currently a postdoc research associate in the MAP team, a project of the Institute for Security Technology Studies and the Center of Mobile Computing at Dartmouth College. Yong's research interests include stochastic modeling, detection and estimation theory, time series pattern analysis, computer and network security, autonomic computing, and collaborative signal processing for distributed sensor networks, and data fusion.
photo Bennet Vance

Bennet Vance was a public school student in Hanover when computing arrived at Dartmouth in the 1960s. Bennet soon acquired the habit of heading over to the computation center after school to try out his latest BASIC programs. His subsequent career as a software developer has included stints at AT&T Bell Laboratories in New Jersey; at True BASIC, the compiler company cofounded by Dartmouth computing pioneers John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz; and at the IBM Almaden Research Center in Silicon Valley, where he helped extend IBM's DB2 database system. Returning to Hanover in 2001, Bennet worked in Dartmouth's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences before taking his current position with the CMC. He holds a bachelor's degree in math from Yale and graduate degrees in computer science from Stanford and from the OGI School of Science & Engineering.

Jihwang Yeo is a programmer and administrator for CRAWDAD project, working with Professors David Kotz and Tristan Henderson. His current work is focused on providing the research community with a large wireless network resource archive, e.g., data sets and tools. He was a research assistant in MIND (Maryland Information and Network Dynamics) lab at University of Maryland, where his primary contribution was the development of a wireless monitoring technique for the analysis and modeling of wireless traffic. His professional career also includes developing XML/SOAP-database gateway when he worked at the IBM Almaden Research Center in summer 2001. He received a master's degree in Computer Science from University of Maryland, College Park MD. He also holds a bachelor's degree and another master's degree in Computer Engineering from Seoul National University,Seoul, Korea.
Vijay Bhuse, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, ISTS, 2007 photo

Vijay received his B. Tech. in Computer Engineering from Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University, Lonere, India in 2000. He received his Ph. D. in Computer Science from Western Michigan University in 2007. He designed lightweight intrusion detection techniques for wireless sensor networks as part of his Ph. D. dissertation. He joined ISTS as a post-doctoral fellow in February 2007 and is working with Prof. David Kotz and Prof. Andrew Campbell. He has 12 publications and 3 posters in the areas of intrusion detection for wireless sensor networks, localization, security and privacy. He was an honorable mention at a student research poster competition held at 7th Annual Information Security Symposium (by CERIAS at Purdue University). He was an honorable mention for an excellence in research award at the Department of Computer Science, Western Michigan University for two years 2004-2005 and 2005-2006. He did internships at ABN Amro (Mumbai), Crompton Greaves (Mumbai) and Manatron (Portage, MI). He is a member of UPE and served as a vice president of the local chapter at Western Michigan University in 2003-2004.

photo Tristan Henderson was a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. He holds an M.A. in Economics from the University of Cambridge, and an M.Sc and Ph.D in Computer Science from University College London. His research interests include wireless networks, measurement, network economics, and networked multimedia, with a particular interest in distributed computer games. He is a member of the ACM, IEE, IEEE and the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers, and serves on the Steering Committee for the International Workshop on Network and System Support for Games.

Minkyong Kim, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, ISTS. Joined IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Sep 2006

photo Minkyong Kim, a post-doc with Professor David Kotz. Her research interests include wireless networks, mobile computing, and distributed systems. For her Ph.D. degree, she worked on designing a file system for mobile clients and estimating network capacity for adaptive systems. She received her Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan. She got her B.S. and M.S. in Computer Engineering from Seoul National University.

Kazuhiro Minami, Ph.D in Computer Science

photo Kazuhiro Minami recently completed his Ph.D. thesis "Secure Context-sensitive Authorization", in which he built and evaluated a distributed authorization system that protects confidential policies and context information in each administrative domain. Kazuhiro is now a postdoctoral research associate at Institute for Security Technology Studies at Dartmouth College, and will be a I3P Fellow at the Information Trust Institute at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the 2006-2007 academic year. Dr. Zack Butler, PostDoc with Daniela Rus and a PostDoctoral Fellow at the ISTS Currently an Assistant Professor in CS at RIT.

Dr. Zack Butler, a postdoc with Daniela Rus and then an Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Security Technology Studies, spent his time at Dartmouth focused on reconfigurable robotic systems and on sensor networks. Indeed, he was involved with the cows project described in the cover story. He is now an assistant professor of computer science at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

Guanling Chen, Ph.D in Computer Science Currently an Assistant Professor in CS at UMass Lowell.

Guanling Chen completed his Ph.D thesis in 2004, "Solar: Building A Context Fusion Network for Pervasive Computing", in which he built and evaluated a middleware framework to support context-aware applications in pervasive computing. Solar is flexible and allows applications to select distributed data sources and compose them with customized data-fusion operators into a directed acyclic information flow graph. Guanling was an I3P Fellow at the Institute for Security Technology Studies at Dartmouth College, and joined the University of Massachusetts (Lowell) beginning Fall 2005.

Dr Geoff(Guofei) Jiang, PostDoc and Researcher Currently working at NEC Research.

Dr. Geoff (Guofei) Jiang spent several years as a postdoc and then senior research scientist at Dartmouth, working on many topics in mobile computing and computer security. He recently joined NEC Research in Princeton, where he leads the Robust and Secure System Group.
