Yan Huang

Assistant Professor

Dr. Yan Huang is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Software Enportraitgineering & Game Development at Kennesaw State University (KSU). Dr. Huang received his PhD degree in the Department of Computing Science at Georgia State University. He is broadly interested in privacy and security, with particular emphasis on deep learning aided privacy protection solutions and cybersecurity challenges in the IoT environment. His past research investigates the privacy protection mechanism design for social networks and risk assessment of private information inference. In particular, his recent research interests are shaped by the emerging trend towards federated learning, which is emphasizing a collaborative learning framework with a strong privacy protection guarantee. Now his research agenda focuses on improving the FL’s performance and efficiency and alleviating the contradictions between multiple training tasks. He has published more than 20 papers in remarkable conferences and journals including Neural Networks, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, IEEE Internet of Things Journal, IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computational Intelligence, IEEE International Conference on Communications, IEEE Global Communications Conference, etc. Dr. Huang is/was a TPC member for many conferences, including IEEE GLOBECOM 2020, IEEE Blockchain 2019, COCOA 2019. He is/was Technical Track Chair of CyberSciTech 2021/2020 and Editor of WCMC.
