Short Bio

Dr. Yuan Hong is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Illinois Tech, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Security and Digital Forensics in the State University of New York (SUNY) at Albany. He received his Ph.D. degree in Information Technology from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, the M.Sc degree in Computer Science from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, and the B.Sc degree from Beijing Institute of Technology. He is a senior member of IEEE.

His research interests include Privacy, Security, Optimization and Data Analytics. He has published in refereed journals and conferences proceedings, such as IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing (TDSC), IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (TIFS), IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management (TEM), Journal of Computer Security (JCS), Optimization Letters, ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS), ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), ACM International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT), and IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM). His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students to work on Data Privacy and Security (RA/TA positions are available!). To apply (Ph.D. in Computer Science), please email me your CV and transcripts. M.Sc. students and visiting scholars/students are also welcome to contact me.
