Dr. Zhdanov combines an active research agenda with passion for program building and student success. He is leading the efforts to expand the role of cybersecurity at GSU via the designation as the NSA/DHS Center of Excellence (pending) and growing faculty core via the Next Generation Program (proposal funded). He is also working on updating the curriculum for the Cybersecurity concentration of the MS IS program and aligning student skills with employer needs - including out-of-class "boot camps."
