Vandana Janeja is Professor and Chair of the Information Systems department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). She is member of the UMBC ADVANCE Executive committee focusing on diversity in STEM. She is a member of the ADVANCE leadership cohort (2020-2021), and a UMBC innovation fellow (2020-2022) advancing the ideas of including ethics in data science.
She is also serving as an intermittent expert at NSF supporting data science activities in the CISE directorate (2018-present).
Her research is in the area of data science with a focus on data heterogeneity across multi-domain datasets for anomaly detection, spatio-temporal data mining, as applied to cybersecurity, health care applications and traffic networks. She has published over 70 research papers and multiple visioning/community reports in the area of data science. Her research has been funded through federal, state and private organizations including NSF, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, MD State Highway Administration, and CISCO. She holds a Ph.D. in Information Technology from Rutgers University.
