Shouhuai Xu

Shouhuai Xu is the Gallogly Chair Professor in the Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). Prior to joining UCCS, he was with the Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at San Antonio. He pioneered a systematic approach, dubbed Cybersecurity Dynamics, to modeling and quantifying cybersecurity from a holistic perspective. This approach has three orthogonal research thrusts: metrics (for quantifying security, agility, resilience, risk and trustworthiness), cybersecurity data analytics, and cybersecurity first-principle modeling (for seeking cybersecurity laws). His research has won a number of awards, including the 2019 worldwide adversarial malware classification challenge organized by the MIT Lincoln Lab. His research has been funded by AFOSR, AFRL, ARL, ARO, DOE, NSA, NSF and ONR. He co-initiated the International Conference on Science of Cyber Security (SciSec) and is serving as its Steering Committee Chair. He has served as Program Committee co-chair for a number of international conferences and as Program Committee member for numerous international conferences. He is/was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing (IEEE TDSC), IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (IEEE T-IFS), and IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering (IEEE TNSE).
