"It is great to welcome another Fulbright Professor at the FH St. Pölten. We are already looking forward to a great cooperation and the many experiences we can share with Jerry!" says Simon Tjoa, Department Head of the Department of Computer Science & Security.

Jerry Emerick, from Ferris State University, will join the Computer Science & Security Department until June.

With Jerry Emerick, from Illinois, USA, the Master's program Cyber Security and Resilience will be enriched by a dazzling personality. He will be a great asset to us with the Application Security and Pentesting course.

We are pleased to have Jerry as another expert in teaching and research in the areas of Cloud Computing and Cloud Security, Advanced Penetration Testing, Python Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Mobile Security and Software Development and Open Source Intelligence.

In addition to teaching, Jerry will also be actively supporting us at the Institute for IT Security Research. "It is always exciting to discuss research questions with our colleagues from America, whose work and approaches are a real enrichment for all of us!" tells Peter Kieseberg, Research Director of the Institute for IT Security.
"I can't wait to dive into the subject matter. So far, I'm very taken with Austria. My wife and I have already done one or two sightseeing tours and my German course, which I have been attending for some time, is also picking up speed. I'm looking forward to our time together here at the University of Applied Sciences St. Pölten!" says Jerry.
