Professor Jie Wang is currently a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He is Director of China Partnerships and Director of the Center for Network and Information Security. He received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Boston University in 1991, a Master of Engineering degree in Computer Science from Zhongshan (Sun Yat-sen) University in 1985, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Computational Mathematics from Zhongshan University in 1982. Professor Wang has over 20 years of teaching experience, as well as security consulting experience in the financial industry. His research has been funded continuously by the NSF since 1991. His research has also been funded by IBM, Intel, the Natural Science Foundation of China, and other resources. He has published over 150 journal and conference papers, four books, and four edited books. Professor Wang's research interests include network security, optimization algorithms, and computational complexity theory. In particular, he is interested in average-case computational complexity and the theory of average-case NP-completeness. He is also interested in algorithmic problems arising from practical applications, including wireless sensor networks, biomedicine, computational medicine, networking, and network-processor-based application performance modeling.

Liran Ma is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Texas Christian University. He received his D.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the George Washington University. His current research focuses on wireless, mobile, and embedded systems, including security and privacy, smartphones, smart health, mobile computing, data analytics, Internet of Things, and cloud computing. It involves building and simulating prototype systems and conducting real experiments and measurements.
