Dr. Katsinis' research interests include: Computer Security, Computer Architecture, Parallel Processing Systems, Fault Tolerant Systems, Image Processing and Pattern Recognition. Dr. Katsinis received his B. S. from the Polytechnic University of Athens, Greece, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI., all in Electrical Engineering. He has held positions at the University of Denver and the University of Alabama in Huntsville and has been with Drexel since 1998. He is currently Associate Professor of Computer Security at the College of Computing and Informatics. Dr. Katsinis has specialized in computer and network security, parallel computer architectures, fault tolerant systems, image processing and performance analysis. He has been the PI or Co-PI of several research projects supported by NSF, US ARMY MICOM, DARPA, ONR, NASA, IBM, Motorola, and other companies totaling more than $3,000,000. He has supervised 12 MS Students and 5 Ph.D. students. Recently, Dr. Katsinis has been the Co-PI of a one-year contract awarded by the US Army. The purpose of this effort was research and development of computer network capabilities for various mobile devices (such as cell phones) with focus on mobile computing, computer security, information assurance and evaluation of distributed intelligent systems. Currently, Dr. Katsinis is a Co-PI (with faculty from the College of Engineering and the College of Computing & Informatics) of a three-year grant awarded by the National Science Foundation.
