Dr. Jun Zheng is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at New Mexico Tech. His current research interests are mobile security, human-centered computing, and machine learning. He has extensive experiences on involving undergraduate students in his research. He is especially willing to work with underrepresented students. Starting from 2011, he has worked with nine minority and female undergraduate students on four CREU (Collaborative Research Experience for Undergraduates) projects supported by CRA-W/CDC. Results of the projects have been published as peer-reviewed conference papers and posters. 


Dr. Dongwan Shin is an Associate Professor and Chair of Computer Science at New Mexico Tech. His primary research interest lies in the areas of system and information security, especially in the following areas: access control, identity/privacy control, applied cryptography, and usable security. Dr. Shin has been extensively involved in a variety of research projects on cybersecurity, in class as well as out of class, with his undergraduate students, since he joined the department in 2005. The research results have been successfully presented at the security conferences as well as in class. 


Dr. Subhasish Mazumdar is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at New Mexico Tech. His current research interests are data management, mobile security and privacy, nonstandard information modeling, and machine learning. He has worked with undergraduate students in prior NSF grants and more recently in several NM-SBIR grants on data management-related problems faced by small and medium sized companies in New Mexico. He has guided several undergraduate students in their research-based projects in his upper-level undergraduate courses.


Dr. Ramyaa is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at New Mexico Tech. Her current research interests are logic, computation and complexity, emerging models of computation, and machine learning. She has worked with undergraduate students on criminology research projects and machine learning projects. She has mentored undergraduate research for Google Summer of Code twice in recent years.
