报告人简介:Dr. Yanfang (Fanny) Ye is currently an Assistant Professor in the Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at West Virginia University. Before joining WVU, she was the Principal Scientist in Comodo Security Solutions, Inc. (2010~2013), and formerly the Deputy Director at Kingsoft Internet Security Corporation (2008~2010). Her research areas mainly include cybersecurity, data mining, and machine learning. Dr. Ye has proposed and developed cloud-based solutions for mining big data in the area of Internet security, especially for malware detection, phishing fraud detection and adversarial machine learning. Her proposed techniques have enabled users to significantly reduce the time needed to detect new malicious software from the order of weeks to mere seconds, which have been incorporated into popular industrial products, including Comodo Internet Security with over 35 million users in the U.S., and Kingsoft Antivirus with over 150 million users in China. Dr. Ye recently received the prestigious U.S. NSF SaTC Award (2016-2019), the New Researcher of the Year Award (2016-2017) at WVU, the ACM SIGKDD 2017 Best Paper Award and ACM SIGKDD 2017 Best Student Paper Award (Applied Data Science Track), and the IEEE EISIC 2017 Best Paper Award.
