Featured FacultySeidenberg School of Computer Science and Information SystemsPauline Mosley, DPS Associate Professor of Information TechnologyIt's rare that a student enters a classroom filled with LEGO® bricks - but it's not an uncommon sight in Pauline Mosley's courses. With more than 20 years of experience in both academic and professional computer science environments, Mosley teaches and engages students through her Problem Solving Using LEGO® Robotics class. Using hands-on techniques and programming skills, students learn how to use a LEGO® model to solve a real-world problem. A proponent of service-learning, Mosley also encourages her students to take a LEGO® robotics presentation to an area school, where students teach children how to use the LEGO® systems. Li-Chiou Chen, PhD Associate Professor of Information TechnologyTackling topics such as exploring countermeasures against Internet-based attacks, investigation of the dynamics of diffusion in various network structures, and detection of anomaly patterns in network traffic, Li-Chiou Chen brings years of research and knowledge to the Information Technology Department. Her research interests are focused on combining artificial intelligence, simulation modeling, and social network analysis to conduct technological and policy analysis in the area of information security.Chienting Lin, PhD Associate Professor of Information TechnologyChienting Lin has worked with his colleagues on security and intrusion detection in connection with the school's designation as one of only two National Centers of Excellence in Information Assurance in the New York Metropolitian Area. His research interests center on information assurance and network security, digital government and e-commerce applications, knowledge management systems, and implementation of enterprise systems. Lin's research has appeared in numerous prestigious publications, including the Journal of Management Information Systems, Decision Support Systems, Social Science Computer Review, Journal of the American Society for Information Science, and IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence.Christelle Scharff, PhD Associate Professor of Computer ScienceChristelle Scharff obtained her PhD in Computer Science from the Henri Poincaré University in Nancy, France and did her research at LORIA and INRIA Lorraine. She continues to apply her research in automated deduction and theorem proving to software and hardware verification. Scharff believes that in today's environment "software proofs have become crucial and provide assurances that cannot be obtained simply through testing." She recently spent a year in Senegal through a grant from the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Agency, introducing the use of mobile computing to aid in the promotion of sustainable economic development and is currently teaching a course in mobile applications to Pace students.39

Jillian M. Mcdonald, MFA Associate Professor of Fine ArtsJillian Mcdonald's work in performance art, new media, and video is exhibited in galleries, museums, and festivals worldwide. Her research focuses on popular film genres and their effects on audiences, including fans. Celebrity worship and horror films are her most beloved subjects. Most recently her large scale sold-out performance, Undead in the Night, included more than 100 actors in the darkened forest of Malmö, Sweden, where small audiences experienced a living horror film along a 3 km path. In 2008, Zombies in Condoland, a commissioned performance for Nuit Blanche Toronto, featured hundreds of passersby turned into zombies and cast in scenes from a horror film. Mcdonald's work is reviewed in The New York Times, Flash Art, Art Papers, The Globe and Mail (Canada), People (Sweden), The Toronto Star, and The Village Voice, among others.Dyson College of Arts and SciencesRostyslaw Robak, PhD Professor of Psychology, Department Chair"When you study psychology at Pace, you gain useful knowledge that can be applied in whatever career path you choose," says Rostyslaw Robak, who teaches courses on Social Psychology, Group Dynamics, Psychology of Death and Dying, and Theories and Techniques of Counseling. "Psychologists have made huge strides in recent years in precisely those areas that everyone needs to understand in order to function better in life. We now know a great deal about what really motivates people and how it is much more helpful to focus on the 'positive' than on what's pathological." Robak has done extensive research on group counseling processes, self-definition, and money and satisfaction. His approach to teaching is simple: Treat students with respect. It's the same approach he's found effective in counseling. Andr´es Villagr´a, PhD Associate Professor of Modern Languages and Cultures Andr´es Villagr´a believes that in today's society the classroom extends far beyond bricks and mortar and that technology can be a powerful cultural bridge. He is a pioneer when it comes to using technology in the classroom. It all started with his own blog, in Spanish, which students eagerly followed. Villagr´a soon introduced blogs into his students' coursework, which they used to connect with other students, faculty, alumni, and professionals in the international community. To create an even more collaborative online experience, he created the Pace University Spanish Lounge using wiki technology. "The students' work has an immediate relevance outside the classroom. They have a sense of authorship and responsibility," explains Villagr´a. "They don't write for the professor anymore; they write for a real audience." In 2010, Villagr´a was awarded the first Dyson College Faculty Instructional Technology Award. He teaches Spanish Conversation, Translation, and Composition; Spanish for Business courses; and courses in Spanish and Latin American Culture, Literature, and Cinema. Nancy Krucher, PhDAssociate Professor of Biology and Health SciencesWhen Nancy Krucher received her PhD in Biochemistry from Clarkson University in 1995, her mother had just been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. She decided to go into breast cancer research at the University of Rochester Cancer Center and New York Medical College before joining the faculty at Pace in 1999. During the past several years, she and her students have developed a novel way to induce cancer cells to commit suicide. "My research projects with Pace students have been among my proudest moments . it's so great to see the students get excited about the work . and provide them with the opportunity to learn about what it's like to be a scientist." Her research has been supported by grants from the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health for the past six years.40Featured FacultyFeatured FACULTY
