Dear Friends,
 
Some very exciting things have been happening in CIS at University of Delaware. First, we want to introduce and welcome our newest faculty member: Rui Zhang who works in the areas of privacy and security in wireless networks, mobile crowdsourcing, and mobile systems for people with disabilities. Welcome Rui!

I am very happy to let you know that Professor Lori Pollock has been appointed Alumni Distinguished Professor! Congratulations Lori! Other faculty honors come to Sunita Chandrasekaran (awarded a 2016 IEEE ICHPC Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers in High Performance Computing), Lena Mashayekhy (her dissertation was given the 2016 IEEE TCSC Outstanding Dissertation Award), and Cathy Wu (recognized by Thomson Reuters as a 2016 Highly Cited Researcher for authoring work ranked among the top 1% most cited in her research area).

This newsletter features a couple of articles on some new and exciting research going on in the department. In addition, there is an article on the opening of our new SPARC Lab (Student Project Arena for Research and Collaboration). This is a great addition to our department! Thank you for your continued support of the department. 

Sincerely,
Kathy McCoy
