I received my Ph.D. in School of Computing and Information Science at Florida International University in 2007. After that I joined as the faculty of Department of Computer Science at the Alabama A&M University in the same year. My research interests mainly fall in the software verification, software quality assurance, runtime verification, and formal methods. I focus on the nonfunctional properties such as correctness, reliability, dependability of distributed and concurrent systems, esp. safety and mission critical system. My recent research falls in the security analysis of cyber physical systems, autonomous mobile systems and real-time embedded systems. I have 40 publications on the verification of software design model in the architecture level, cyber security analysis and robot design. Moreover, I am also interested in the correctness of object oriented programming languages and have developed a method to demonstrate the correctness of a restricted Java program based on the interleaving execution sequence. 

I teach several undergraduate and graduate courses including Visual Programming in Java, Assembly Language, Object oriented Programming and Design, and Software Engineering and Methodology. I advise ten graduate students and more than twenty undergraduate students, and serves as three graduate students’ committee. I also actively serve as reviewers of several journals and prestigious conferences. I have continuously committed as a member of IEEE, ACM, ASEE and InfraGuard.
I received my Ph.D. in School of Computing and Information Science at Florida International University in 2007.

Dr. Wing Chan is currently the Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program coordinator. As an EET program coordinator, he successfully completed four ABET accreditation visits. In summer 2010, he led the technology students in competing in the International Micro Arial Vehicle (IMAV) competition.  He served as the manager for AAMU’s “Faculty and Students Team (FaST)” and “Visiting Faculty Program (VFP)” for the last three summer internship programs at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in New York. During these three summer internship programs, he mentored in total of seventeen students from four different disciplines (EE, ME, EET, and MET). He is Co-PI of a $2 million grant funded by the NSF-ARI. His research interest is on improving the performance of the room temperature solid-state nuclear detector materials, CZT and CMT crystals, by eliminating the defects in them. He has been collaborating with the scientists at BNL for the last three years in this project.
