Over the past eight years, Dr. Sanjay Goel has built an impressive record in all aspects of research, grants, publications, and involvement with the research community. An associate professor of information technology management, Dr. Goel is internationally known and respected for his expertise in information security, cyber warfare, nanosensor self-organization, and environmental sustainability. He has blended his background in engineering, computer science, and business to create a rich and productive portfolio of multidisciplinary research. He worked at General Electric Global Research prior to joining UAlbany, and he has blended his industry experience with academics to create productive partnerships for research and grants. Dr. Goel has published more than 50 journal articles and conference proceedings. In addition, he is a frequent invited keynote and plenary speaker at national and international conferences. He is a part of the ìGroup of Expertsî for the Office of Security Cooperation in Europe's Action Against Terrorism Unit, and one of the key members of the international volunteer group GreyGoose, which investigates incidents of cyber warfare around the world. Dr. Goel has worked to bridge the academic and practitioner communities through joint conferences and research projects. He was one of the architects of the Information Assurance concentration of the Information Science doctoral program. His work has been supported by grants from private industrial, federal, and state sources.
