Ye, Nong

Nong YeProfessor Nong Ye received her Ph.D. degree (1991) in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University, and her M.S. degree (1988) and B.S. degree (1985) in Computer Science from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Peking University, both in P. R. China. Dr. Ye’s past and current research activities have received over $8M external funding support and have produced seventy-eight journal papers and three books.

Ye’s research focuses on modeling, mining and analyzing massive data to understand dynamics of computer and network systems and biological brain systems which will be used to develop system solutions to improve the design of information systems for Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Information Assurance (QoIA). Her recent research involves understanding statistical/mathematical data characteristics of normal use and attack activities on computers and networks to develop intrusion detection algorithms, understanding cause-effect dynamics of service activities, resource state and QoS performance on computers and networks to enable QoS adaptation and tradeoff between QoS and QoIA, and understanding neural population dynamics of biological brain for motor movements to develop human-brain interface applications for assisting people with disabilities in motor functions.
