Min and Drozdenko join Louisiana Tech's Computer Science and Cyber Engineering Faculty

After a national search, Louisiana Tech University has selected two faculty members for its Computer Science and Cyber Engineering program. Manki Min, Ph.D., will serve as an Associate Professor of Computer Science, and Benjamin Drozdenko will be an Assistant Professor in Cyber Engineering.

Dr. Min currently serves as Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at South Dakota State University, Brookings. He joined the university in 2006 as an Assistant Professor. He has published 50 peer reviewed technical papers and has served on NSF proposal review panels.

He earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree and a Master of Science in Computer Science degree from Seoul National University. He received a Ph.D. in Computer and Information Sciences from the University of Minnesota.

Drozdenko is a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Engineering and Graduate Teaching Assistant at Northeastern University in Boston, Mass. He is expected to graduate in May 2017. Before returning to graduate school, he was a Systems Engineer for four years at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems in Woburn, Mass.

He holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Computer and Systems Engineering degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., and a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree from Northeastern University. He also served two years as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Northeastern and two years as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant at Rensselaer Polytechnic.
