Kevin W. Hemlen


Associate Professor

Kevin W. Hemlen received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from Cornell University, and his B.S. from Carnegie Mellon University, where his work on proof-carrying code garnered the Allen Newell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research.

His research applies and extends compiler theory, functional and logic programming, and automated program analysis technologies toward the development of scientifically rigorous software security systems. Over the past five years his work has received over $8 million in federally funded research awards, including Career awards from both the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. His research on secure binary retrofitting, reactively adaptive malware, and software cyber-deception has received four best paper awards in 2011-2014, and has been featured in thousands of news headlines worldwide, including The Economist and New Scientist.

Sergiy Vilkomir


Associate Professor
Software Testing Research Group
Department of Computer Science
East Carolina University

Sergiy Vilkomir is an Associate Professor in Computer Science at East Carolina University (ECU). He has more than 25 years of experience in researching in software testing, reliability, and formal methods. Dr. Vilkomir is the author of more than 80 publications in these areas, including papers in such journals as ACM Computing Surveys, Information & Software Technology, Formal Aspects of Computing, Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering - A NASA Journal, Quality and Reliability Engineering International Journal, and others. In particular, he created Reinforced Condition/Decision Coverage (RC/DC), a new criterion for software testing, which provides further development of MC/DC and is more suitable for testing of safety-critical software.

Dr. Vilkomir has a very strong international research experience at senior positions. Prior to joining ECU, Dr. Vilkomir has worked as a researcher at the University of Tennessee (USA), University of Limerick (Ireland), University of Wollongong (Australia), South Bank University (London, UK). He has been a Head of Software Safety Laboratory (Kharkov, Ukraine) and provided licensing and safety audits of safety-critical computer systems at Ukrainian nuclear power plants. At ECU, Dr. Vilkomir teaches the courses on software testing for MS students and supervises research projects of many students in software testing. He is a certified software tester and obtained ISTQB advanced certificate from International Software Testing Qualifications Board.

Dr. Vilkomir is a Senior Member of IEEE and ACM. He has been a program committee member of many international conferences including SEKE, ICSOFT, ICFEM, ICST, TASE, and others. He is a recipient of the Google Faculty Research Award from Google Inc. (2010 - 2011).
