01 July 2016 – NUS Computing welcomes four new faculty members to the Department of Computer Science and one new faculty member to the Department of Information Systems.

 Bingsheng He 2

Associate Professor Bingsheng He

Department of Computer Science

A/P He's research interests are big data management systems, parallel and distributed systems, and cloud computing. His mission is to build faster, greener, and cheaper high-performance computing systems. His work on GPGPU computation for large-scale data processing has gained significant attention internationally. A/P He has served as a PC member for many international conferences, as a demo co-Chair for VLDB 2017, PC co-chair for IEEE CloudCom 2014/2015 and HardBD 2016. He has also served on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing and IEEE Transactions on Parallel & Distributed Systems.


Min Suk Kang2

Assistant Professor Min Suk Kang

Department of Computer Science

Dr. Kang’s research interests are in the area of network and distributed system security and privacy, particularly in future Internet architectures, cellular networks, and the Internet of Things. He completed his doctoral thesis on non-traditional large-scale distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against Internet infrastructure at Carnegie Mellon University.



Assistant Professor Yair Zick

Department of Computer Science

Dr. Zick's work lies at the intersection of game theory, multi-agent systems, and machine learning, with applications to social choice, security, privacy, and education. He is the recipient of the IFAAMAS Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award for his PhD thesis on revenue division among collaborative entities, and the AAMAS 2011 Pragnesh Jay Modi Best Student Paper Award for his work on overlapping coalition formation games.


 divesh aggarwal

Assistant Professor Divesh Aggarwal

Department of Computer Science

Dr. Aggarwal's work spans a wide range of topics in theoretical computer science, in particular, complexity and cryptography. He is known for his work on random extractors, non-malleable codes, and lattice algorithms. He will hold a joint appointment as a Principal Investigator in the Center for Quantum Technologies.


Sung Yong Um

Assistant Professor Um Sung Yong

Department of Information Systems

Dr. Um is broadly interested in digital technology and its impact on complex socio-technical issues from a network perspective. Dr. Um's research focuses on exploring the underlying mechanisms of the evolution of digital ecosystems to better understand what drives innovation in and of such ecosystems. His research is supported by grants from CIGREF and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
