Min Suk KANG

I am an assistant professor of Computer Science Department, School of Computing at National University of Singapore. My research interests lie in the field of network and distributed systems security, wireless network security, and Internet privacy.

I obtained my PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2016 under the supervision of Virgil D. Gligor in CyLab. I received BS and MS degrees in EECS at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2006 and 2008, respectively.

I am fortunate to work with bright and motivated PhD students: Muoi Tran, Deli Gong (co-advised), and Nitya Lakshmanan.
