Lance Fiondella joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2013. Prior to joining UMassD, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Mathematical and Geospatial Sciences at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Australia.

His PhD dissertation developed models to optimize the reliability of software based on its architecture. In addition to his reliability engineering research, he also participated in research at the Center for Resilient Transportation Infrastructure (CRTI), a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Transportation Security Center of Excellence (NTSCOE) at the University of Connecticut (UConn).

He has published over 40 peer reviewed journal and conference papers. Four of his conference papers have been recognized with awards, including the 2011 best paper award from the International Conference on Reliability and Quality in Design (RQD) and the 2012 best paper award in the Attack and Disaster Preparation, Recovery and Response Track at the IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST).

As a graduate student, he was the recipient of a National Science Foundation (NSF) East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) for U.S. Graduate Students, which enabled him to conduct collaborative research in the Department of Industrial Management at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST).

He is a member of the IEEE Reliability Society and Vice-chair of Standard 1633, Recommended Practice on Software Reliability.
