Jeffrey L. Hieb is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Fundamentals at the University of Louisville. He graduated from Furman University in 1992 with degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy. After 10 years working in industry, he returned to school, completing his Ph.D. in Computer Science Engineering at the University of Louisville’s Speed School of Engineering in 2008. Since completing his degree, he has been teaching engineering mathematics courses and continuing his dissertation research in cyber security for industrial control systems. In his teaching, Dr. Hieb focuses on innovative and effective use of tablets, digital ink, and other technology and is currently investigating the use of the flipped classroom model and collaborative learning. His research in cyber security for industrial control systems is focused on high assurance field devices using microkernel architectures.
Olfa Nasraoui is Professor of Computer Engineering and Computer Science, Endowed Chair of e-commerce, and the founding director of the Knowledge Discovery and Web Mining Lab at the University of Louisville. She received her Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1999. From 2000 to 2004, she was an Assistant Professor at the University of Memphis.
