He is a member of Decision Making and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which focuses on biomedical and health informatics research.
Gavin has developed custom databases and Excel spreadsheets for departments on campus and local companies, along with developing websites for local companies. In addition to teaching at UW-Platteville she also is a scorer for the Computer Science AP exam.
Lindahl has been involved in supporting research and integrating applications and technologies for high-end visualization solutions such as virtual reality display systems. More recently, he has been involved with developing and supporting websites.
Anand Richard, PhD
Dr.Richard is an embedded systems software professional and entered academia after a 20-year stint in industry that included 10 years in Silicon Valley (1994-2004). His work at Intel’s networking division building Gigabit Routers involved contributions to the IEEE 802.1 working group to help write the 802.1Q and 802.1S specifications.
His research interests include embedded systems and industrial network protocols like DNP3.
Yan Shi, PhD
Dr. Shi's research interests focus on data engineering, software verification, smart fault localization and machine learning. She has published her research in reputable journals and conferences such as IEEE Transaction on Mobile Computing and INFOCOM. She also serves as a peer referee for journals and conferences.
She is a member of ACM, IEEE and ISCA (International Society of Computers and their Applications). She serves as the program chair of the ISCA International Conference on Software Engineering and Data Engineering (SEDE) and on the Board of Directors of ISCA.
Baozhong Tian, PhD
Dr. Tian's research interest lies mainly in image processing areas such as computer vision techniques including moving objects tracking, optical flow computation, and 3D scene reconstruction. He has published a series of peer-reviewed papers on 3D reconstruction algorithm analysis, comparison and applications.
He is actively involved with undergraduate students in research projects, such as advising students to use state-of-the-art computer vision software libraries to build human tracking surveillance systems. Different algorithms have been tested in various surveillance environments. He also supervises graduate students on developing eye detection and tracking algorithms.
Dr. Tian's industry experience includes work for IBM, Computer Mind, and I3DVR International Ltd. His work proved him to be an excellent problem solver and researcher in business. He has participated in many IT and e-commerce projects as well as human tracking projects in commercial video surveillance systems.
Dr. Tian's electronics and acoustics science background makes him capable of many additional research areas such as acoustics design, ultrasound detection and measurement, and more industrial research and applications.
Qi Yang, PhD
Professor and Program Coordinator (Masters)
Dr. Yang's research focus has been algorithms, data mining, distributed computing, and fuzzy database.
Songqing (Joshua) Yue, PhD
Dr. Yue's research interests include software engineering with a special focus on program transformation systems and domain-specific languages (DSLs). He also has interests in high performance computing (HPC) and network security. His research is focused on program transformation techniques applied to languages widely used in HPC. The goal is to address a number of challenges in developing and maintaining HPC.
He has several years of software development experience in the industry and worked as an assistant professor at the University of Central Missouri prior to joining UW-Platteville.
