Dr. Chen-Fu Chiang
Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Ph.D., University of Central Florida
Dr. Chiang joined the University of Central Missouri (UCM) in January 2014 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in the College of Health, Science and Technology. Prior to coming to UCM, he had been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Université de Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada from 2012 to 2013.
Dr. Chiang received his first bachelor's degree from National Taiwan University and his second bachelor's degree from the University of Central Florida. Dr. Chiang further obtained his M.S.E from the University of Pennsylvania and Ph.D. from the University of Central Florida.
Dr. Chiang's teaching interests include algorithms, database systems and motivating students to be more self-driven. His primary research interests are in the field of theoretical computation, algorithm design and analysis, especially in quantum computation and quantum algorithms. He has been working on understanding and demonstrating how quantum phenomena can be harnessed in order to dramatically advance the fundamental capabilities of information processing devices.
In his free time, he enjoys riding his bicycle to explore the scenery and the interesting things and people around him.
