Byunggu Yu, PhD

Acting Chair & Associate Professor

Department of Computer Science and Information Technology; 202.274.6289

Research Interests: My recent research results include novel techniques for managing and accessing continuously changing information in space-time continuum and already proven techniques for managing low- to high-dimensional data presented in many publications in leading scientific forums in Computer Science. Most recently, I have been initiating new sensor-network research. I am also cultivating new research areas in bioinformatics and energy databases. I have produced several MSs and PhDs in the past and worked with faculty at various other institutions in graduate education, extramural funding, and research. Most recently, I developed an MOA with an Information Research Center, called CRISP, at the University of Denver as the Acting Chair of CSIT for seeking extramural funding and for enhancing CSIT curricula.
