Dr. Burkhard Englert is Chair of the Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department and Interim Chair in the Biomedical Engineering Department at CSULB. He earned his Ph.D. from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut in 2000. His doctoral research was in the area of computability theory (recursion theory) and dealt with lattice embeddings into the computably enumerable degrees. He also worked on distributed algorithms. In 1992, he received a BS degree in mathematics from the University of Tuebingen in Germany.

After finishing his Ph.D. in 2000, Dr. Burkhard came to University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) as an adjunct assistant professor in computing. At UCLA, he received the Sorgenfrey Distinguished Teaching Award for visiting faculty members for outstanding achievements in teaching by the department of Mathematics. Currently, Dr. Englert teaches a broad range of graduate and undergraduate courses concentrating on computer security, net-centric computing, and distributed systems.

Dr. Englert's research interests are distributed computing, distributed algorithms, computer security, and transportation network modeling and optimization. He also serves as a reviewer and a member of program committees on a number of national and international conferences.
