School of Computer Science Adds Systems, Cybersecurity, and Networking Researchers to Faculty

Tumanov Dhekne

Two new tenure-track faculty have joined the School of Computer Science. The assistant professors add to our expertise in the systems and networking fields.

Alexey Tumanov joins us from a post-doctoral fellowship at University of California, Berkeley. The systems researcher specializes in systems support and resource management for distributed machine learning (ML) frameworks and applications. Specifically, he works on soft-real time ML inference and co-scheduling ML inference and training. Tumanov received his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University and has previously been a research assistant at the University of Toronto and a software developer at IBM.

Ashutosh Dhekne received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As a networking researcher, his emphasis is in wireless networking, mobile computing, embedded systems, and the Internet of Things. These areas have applications in RF sensing, 5G cellular networks, and cyber physical systems.

Paul Pearce has also arrived to start as an assistant professor. Pearce was hired last year for his expertise in cybersecurity. He focuses on network security and measurement on politically and economically motivated attacks, such as censorship, cybercrime, and advanced persistent threats.
