Mira Yun


I am a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science and Networking at Wentworth Institute of Technology. My research focuses on the topic of wireless networks, scheduling algorithms and resource management. My research and teaching interests include computer networks, wireless networking and systems security, and mobile computing. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from The George Washington University under the supervision of Prof. Hyeong-Ah Choi.

Personal Interests:

For leisure, I enjoy reading the Bible and love exploring different restaurants in the area. I am also fond of going out for a walk and play tennis, badminton, and pingpong.


Current Courses:

  • COMP685 (Seminar in Computer Science - Wireless and Mobile Networks): 

    This course will give introduction to the state of the art wireless and mobile networks. Specifically, Cellular Network 2G/3G/4G, IEEE 802.16 WiMAX, IEEE 802.11 and Wireless Ad-hoc and Sensor Network (Bluetooth, Zigbee, RFID, and etc.) will be discussed.

    This course will further help build understanding regarding the different layers of wireless and mobile networking and the interactions between them. The topic of resource management, network protocols, security, mobility, scalability, and their unique characteristics in wireless networks will be discussed in the course.

  • COMP665 (Advanced Topics in Networking - 802.11 Wireless Networks): 

    In this course, we will cover the fundamental principles, architectures, and standards of modern wireless communication systems, including their applications and uses. The Topics of radio communications, spread spectrum, OFDM, CDMA, antenna, security, vulnerabilities, network planning and deployment issues will be discussed.

    Specifically, the course will study IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless standards. From the physical layer specifications, this course will address the medium access control protocols and their security protocols including WEP, WPA, and 802.11i.
