Biographical Sketch

Myung Ah Park received her Ph.D. and M.S. in computer science from The University of Texas at Dallas in August 2007 and  her M.S. and B.S. in mathematics from Chungnam National University, Korea in 1992 and 1990, respectively. She joined the Department of Computer Science at University of Central Oklahoma as an assistant professor in Fall 2008. Prior to it, she worked for the Department of Computing and Technology at Cameron University as an assistant professor from Aug. 2007 to May 2008. Her current research interests are security/forensics education, security issues in wireless sensor networks, web applications, and cloud computing, and resource optimization problems in wireless sensor networks. She is a certified forensic analyst since 2009.


Industry Experience

Myung Ah Park worked for Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute as research engineer from 1993 to 2001. From 2001 to 2007, she took a leave for her Ph.D. She was involved in several R&D projects such as nationwide value-added information retrieval system named Advanced Information Control Processing System (AICPS), TMN-based number portability system and integrated network management system for Frame Relay and ATM networks.
