Biography


Dr. Li-Chiou Chen is a professor at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, Pace University. She has a Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and was affiliated with the Center for Computational Analysis of Social and Organizational Systems. While at CMU, she built a computational simulation tool to investigate policy decisions in countering distributed denial-of-service attacks. In addition, she participated in a DARPA-funded research project, BioWar, where she analyzed policy decisions to respond against the spread of biological agents using multi-agent based simulation. Her current research has been focused on user authentication, application security, security risk perception and management, and security policy enforcement. She has published papers in top academic journals, including Computer & Security, Decision Support Systems and IEEE Transactions. Li-Chiou has developed a set of teaching materials called SWEET (Secure WEb dEvelopment Teaching) for the design, analysis and implementation of secure web application development. She is also the principal investigator of the CyberCorps program at Pace University, supported by the National Science Foundation, as well as the GenCyber programs, supported by the National Security Agency.
