Shambhu J. Upadhyaya is Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the State University of New York at Buffalo where he also directs the Center of Excellence in Information Systems Assurance Research and Education (CEISARE), designated by the National Security Agency. Prior to July 1998, he was a faculty member at the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. His research interests are information assurance, computer security, fault diagnosis, fault tolerant computing, and VLSI Testing. He has authored or coauthored more than 200 articles in refereed journals and conferences in these areas. His current projects involve insider threat modeling, intrusion detection, security in wireless networks, and protection against Internet attacks. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Rome Laboratory, the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research, DARPA, and National Security Agency. In May 1999, IBM sponsored a new Electronic Test and Design Automation Lab to support his teaching and research on VLSI Testing. He has been awarded an IBM Faculty Partnership Fellowship for year 2000-01 in recognition of his research accomplishments in the area of VLSI. He was also an NRC faculty fellow in 2001 and 2002. In 2005, he received Cisco equipment donation to build a computer security lab. He has held visiting research faculty positions at the Center for Reliable and High Performance Computing, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Intel Corporation, Folsom, CA, Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome, NY and the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington DC. He was the Program Co-Chair of the Fifth IEEE/ACM Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI, 1995. He has served on various Conference Committees including the IEEE Simulation Conference, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999 - 2007, Fault Tolerant Computing Symposium, 1997, and 1999, IEEE International Symposium on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI Systems, 1997, 1998, 2000 - 2003, 2006, and IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems, 1998, 1999, 2006-2007. He was the publicity chair of 1998 IEEE International Computer Performance and Dependability Symposium, and has served as the Program Co-chair of IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems, 2000 held in Nuernberg, Germany. He was an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Computers from 2001 to 2006, and is a member of the editorial board of the International Journal on Reliability, Quality, and Safety Engineering published by the World Scientific Publishers. He was a guest co-editor of the book series Interfaces in OR/CS on Mobile Computing: Implementing Pervasive Information and Communication Technologies, Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2001 and was a guest co-editor of a special issue on Secure Knowledge Management in IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, May 2006. He has been on the Program Committee of 3rd IEEE International Information Assurance Workshop, Washington DC, March 2005, Dependable Computing and Communications Symposium of IEEE DSN-2005, Annual IEEE Information Assurance Workshop, West Point, NY, 2005, 2007, IEEE International Symposium on Ubisafe Computing (UbiSafe-07), IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS) 2007, 2008, International Swarm Intelligence & Other Forms of Malware Workshop (Malware 2007, 2008) and Annual Simulation Symposium, 2007, 2008. He is the General Chair of the 28th IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems to be held at Niagara Falls, NY in September 2009. He was an invited speaker at the 3rd Annual IFIP WG 11.9 Digital Forensics Conference at Orlando, FL, Jan. 2007, a keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual Symposium on Information Assurance, Albany, NY, June 2007 and a keynote speaker at the DIMACS/DyDAn Workshop on Mathematical & Computational Methods for Information Security, Texas Southern University, Houston, Texas, December 7, 2007. His paper "Spycon: Emulating User Activities to Detect Evasive Spyware" received the Best Paper Award in IEEE Malware 2007. He is a senior member of IEEE.
