Department Welcomes New Faculty

The NC State University Department of Computer Science is pleased to announce the addition of two new faculty members to our department for the fall 2013 semester:
Dr. Min Chi joined the department as an assistant professor in the Digital Transformation of Education cluster (part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program).  Chi’s specialty is applied machine learning and data mining, and her research focuses on artificial intelligence, applying computer science to improve human learning, cognitive science and learning science, and math and science education.
Chi received her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the Intelligent Systems Program at the University of Pittsburgh in 2006, and 2009 respectively.  Prior to joining NC State, Chi was a PostDoc Fellow in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, and Human Sciences and the Technologies Advanced Research Institute at Stanford University.  For more information on Chi, click here.
Dr. Blair Sullivan joined the department as an assistant professor.  Sullivan's research incorporates algorithm design, graph theory, parallel computing, and combinatorial scientific computing to address challenges in understanding and evaluating massive graph data. Her recent work focuses on integrating tools and techniques from structural graph theory into tools for scalable network analysis.
Sullivan received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Princeton University in 2008, where she held a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Graduate Fellowship and Dissertation Grant.  She received B.S. degrees in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2003.  Prior to joining NC State, Sullivan was a computational mathematician in the Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where she was principal investigator on grants from the DOE’s Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research, DARPA GRAPHS, and ORNL’s LDRD program.  For more information on Sullivan, click here.
Please join us in welcoming these faculty members to our department.
