Computer System and Hardware Security
Security is a dynamic problem requiring continuous solution development. Latest industry report indicates cybercrime costs the US economy nearly $120 billion a year. The objective of this research is to continuously develop and improve hardware and software security and Trust solutions at the 1) systems/application level, 2) architectural and board level, 3) embedded-device level, 4) FPGA and ASIC level and 5) circuit level (including analog, RF, and digital). The research problems in this field are multidisciplinary in nature, requiring knowledge in computer architecture, VLSI design, applied machine learning, embedded systems and computer systems.
