Title: Associate Professor

Office: Dahlonega


Dr. Kongmunvattana joins the Computer Science and Information Systems Department in the Mike Cottrell College of Business at the University of North Georgia as an associate professor in 2019. Dr. K has 20 years of teaching experience in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Information Technology. His research work spans a broad spectrum of areas. Specifically, Dr. K worked on research projects in robotics, cryptographic algorithms, and chip design in the early 1990s before moving on to performance optimization, system recovery, task migration, reconfiguration, and load balancing in parallel and distributed systems from mid-1990s onward. Recently, in mid-2010s, Dr. K expanded his research work to include data and visual analytics, cybersecurity and CS education, and DNA sequencing. His work has been partially supported by Altera, Sun Microsystems, NSF, and USGS. On teaching and mentoring, Dr. K has taught virtually all courses in the computer science core areas and supervised ten masters theses, one doctoral dissertation, and many undergraduate projects, earning University Teaching Excellence Award in 2015 and College Faculty Service Award in 2016.
