Dr. Feodor F. Dragan
Professor of Computer Science
Feodor F.
Dragan received the M.S. degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science
from Moldova State University, in 1985, and the PhD degree in Theoretical Computer
Science from the Belorussian Academy of Sciences, in 1990. He was an Assistant
and then an Associate Professor at the Mathematics and Computer Science
Department of Moldova State University from 1988 to 1999. From 1994 to 1999, he
was on leave of absence and worked in Germany as a Research Associate on a
Volkswagen Foundation (VW) project and on a German Research Community (DFG)
project. He was also awarded a DAAD Research Fellowship (Germany) from 1994 to
1995. During 1999 to 2000, he was a Research Associate at the Computer Science
Department of University of California, Los Angeles. Since August 2000 he has
been with Kent State University and he is currently a Professor of Computer
Science. He
held visiting positions in Germany (Technische
