Dr. Yi Yang
Assistant Professor, Director of Cybersecurity Major
Office: Ryan Hall 414
I got my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University (University Park) in August, 2010. From Fall 2010 to Summer 2013, I was an assistant professor at the Catholic University of America in Washington DC. After that, I joined the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Fontbonne University as an assistant professor in Summer 2013.
