Curriculum Vitae


Luc Longpré
Associate Professor, Computer Science
Director, Computer Science Undergraduate Program

Professor Longpré earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science at Cornell in 1986. Before coming to UTEP he taught at Northeastern University and the University of Washington, and he has also taught classes as a visitor at the University of Montreal.
His research includes the recasting the study of information theory in a resource bounded framework, and in general, any application of information theory to computer science. He is also trying to link the existence of secure cryptographic systems to structural complexity. Modeling and guaranteeing privacy is another area of interest.
He has long served as an organizer of the IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity, and he is the Director of UTEP's Center for Information Assurance.
