Roman V. Yampolskiy, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Director of the CyberSecurity Laboratory at the J.B. Speed School of Engineering, Duthie Center for Engineering, University of Louisville.
Roman earned his Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo. There he was a recipient of a four year NSF (National Science Foundation) IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) fellowship. Before beginning his doctoral studies, he earned his BS/MS (High Honors) combined degree in Computer Science from Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, USA.
After completing his Ph.D. dissertation, Roman held a position of an Affiliate Academic at the Center for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University of London, College of London. In August of 2008, he accepted an assistant professor position at the Speed School of Engineering, University of Louisville, KY. He had previously conducted research at the Laboratory for Applied Computing (currently known as Center for Advancing the Study of Infrastructure) at the Rochester Institute of Technology and at the Center for Unified Biometrics and Sensors at the University at Buffalo.
His main areas of interest are behavioral biometrics, digital forensics, pattern recognition, genetic algorithms, neural networks, artificial intelligence, and games. He is an author of over 50 publications including multiple journal articles and books. His research has been cited by numerous scientists and profiled in popular magazines both American and foreign (New Scientist, Poker Magazine, Science World Magazine), dozens of websites (Yahoo! News, ACM TechNews, Security World) and on radio (German National Radio). Reports about his work have attracted international attention and have been translated into many languages including Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, and Spanish.
Roman authored Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach, Computer Security: from Passwords to Behavioral Biometrics, Game Strategy: A Novel Behavioral Biometric, Feature Extraction Approaches for Optical Character Recognition, The Gift of Sudoku, Computer Generated Sudoku Puzzles, and Jokes about Computers and Programmers (Russian).
His papers include Application of bio-inspired algorithm to the problem of integer factorization, Strategy-Based Behavioral Biometric: a Novel Approach to Automated Identification, Action-based user authentication, Traffic Analysis Based Identification of Attacks, Behavioral biometrics: a survey and classification, Embedded Noninteractive Continuous Bot Detection, and Behavioral Modeling: an Overview.
