UC San Diego computer scientists lauded for computer systems security, bioinformatics work
Date:12/8/2010

For contributions to bioinformatics and computer systems security, computer science professors Pavel Pevzner and Stefan Savage from the University of California, San Diego are among 41 computer scientists named as 2010 ACM Fellows. Professors Pevzner and Savage are from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.

The ACM, or Association for Computing Machinery, is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society. The ACM Fellows Program, initiated in 1993, celebrates the exceptional contributions of the leading members in the computing field.

"This recognition reflects the tremendous talent pool and quality of research efforts that the department has built in growing areas of computer science in particular in computer systems security and bioinformatics. This work lays important intellectual foundations for tremendous impacts of computing on society and human welfare," said Rajesh Gupta, Professor and Chair, Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego.

Computer science professor Stefan Savage is being recognized by the ACM "for contributions to large scale systems and network security."

Pavel Pevzner, also a computer science professor at UC San Diego, is being recognized by the ACM "for contributions to algorithms for genome rearrangements, DNA sequencing, and proteomics."

Large Scale Systems and Network Security

UC San Diego computer science professor Stefan Savage's work has focused on the security threats enabled by broad Internet connectivity; including worms, viruses, denial-of-service, botnets and spam. He is known for advancing a quantitative approach towards computer security, including the development of empirical techniques to measure and analyze global-scale attacks and efforts to identify the economics driving modern attackers.

Savage is part of the Systems & Networking and Security
