Dejun "DJ" Yang

I am the Ben L. Fryrear Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Colorado School of Mines.

Note: I am looking for self-motivated and hardworking students who are interested in tackling algorithmic, optimization, and economic challenges across different areas, including networking, crowdsourcing, smart grid, and security and privacy. If you are interested in these areas and working with me at Mines, please send me an email with your CV, transcripts, publications if applicable, and everything that you think may increase your chances.
