Faculty Highlight - Prof. Jing Deng
Jing Deng, Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science, has recently been named an IEEE Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He is being recognized for his work in the development and optimization of wireless security and networking protocols. The number of IEEE Fellows selected in any year is limited to at most one-tenth of one percent of IEEE voting members, so this honor places Dr. Deng among the very top researchers and practitioners in the world. Dr. Deng currently leads a team of researchers in his lab that investigate issues related to wireless networks, social networks, and security techniques, developing knowledge and techniques that will connect individuals into communities and enable smarter and safer information exchange.
