Rob Abbott University of North Carolina @ Charlotte


I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  My advisor is Dr. Mirsad Hadzikadic.


I am also a Graduate Lecturer appointed by the Data Science Initiative at UNC Charlotte.


I received a B.S. in Information Systems from the School of Computing at the University of South Alabama in 1996, and a MBA with a specialization in Technology Management from the University of Phoenix in 2014.


I have worked in various information systems & technologies roles for over 30 years.  I am currently a Digital Payment Systems Architect for Bank of America.  Prior to that, I held senior technology leadership roles at several companies, including Bank of America from 2007 to 2015, where I managed the development and engineering of BankAmeriDeals, as well as other compelling products while in the Digital Wallets & Commerce organization.  I also ran a small technology systems integration company for over 10 years where I had the opportunity to solve some really interesting challenges in the supply chain and logistics space.
