Deidre Williams Evans
I am Deidre Williams Evans, Associate Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA in 1994. I also possess a M.S.E.E. and B.E.E. from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA and a B.S. in Computer Science from Spelman College, Atlanta, GA. I joined the Department of Computer and Information Sciences as an Assistant Professor in 1994 and have been tenured and promoted to Associate Professor since then. During this period, I have participated and obtained grants as CO-PI totaling over $3 million. I am currently directing a master's student and have served as a committee member on several other students' thesis committees. I have published and presented in regional and international conferences. My research interests include cryptography, data compression, and formal specifications. I have taught a variety of courses in the areas of discrete structures, programming, and formal methods. I have also served on a variety of departmental and university level committees.
