Joseph N. Wilson's Picture

Joseph N. Wilson CISE Comp. Sci. Guy.

I'm an Associate Professor at the University of Florida's Computer & Information Science & Engineering Department. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Virginia Department of Computer Science in 1985. I was Associate Chair of the UF CISE Department from late 1994 through August of 2001.

I am the faculty advisor for the University of Florida StudentInformation Security Team. My interests are quite varied, but most of my current funded research is associated with the detection and remediation of land mines and other unexploded buried hazards.

Over the years I've taught a number of classes. I thought they were all interesting and I hope some of my students thought so too.

This semester I'm teaching Penetration Testing--Ethical Hacking (CIS 4204/CIS 6930). You can see a comprehensive list of courses I've taught since 1994.
