|Dr. Kenji Yoshigoe, is Professor of Computer Science at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR). He received his B.S. in Computer Science and Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from University of South Florida in 2000 and 2004, respectively. His research explores new algorithms, protocols, and architectures for scalable computing and communication systems. He is currently investigating the scalability, reliability, and security of systems ranging from high performance computing systems to wireless sensor networks.
Currently, Dr. Yoshigoe serves as Chair of the Department of Computer Science at UALR, the Director of the NSA Designated Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE), and the founding Director of UALR’s Computational Research Center (CRC). CRC is dedicated to the promotion of efficiency, productivity, and accuracy in research through the use of significant and diverse computing resources and is designed in such a way to address the diversity of research community and to serve varied computational requirements of this diversified environment at UALR. This center is unique to Arkansas and brings a new level of computing capacity and capability to education, corporate, and government research organizations.
Dr. Yoshigoe is a recipient of many funding awards from the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and National Institute of Health. He is an editorial board member of IET Wireless Sensor Systems and River Publishers Journal of Cyber Security and Mobility – Special Issue on Big Data Theory and Practice, has co-chaired on the International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization and IEEE International High Assurance Systems Engineering, and serves as a technical committee member on many international conferences and workshops.
