UC Davis ASEEC laboratory and NSF CHEST Center received the 2020 NSF Computing Innovation Fellow award. As part of the award ASEEC lab is glad to host Dr. Soheil Salehi research on the topic of "SHIELD: Secure Hardware for IoT using Emerging-devices against side-channeL Deep-learning attacks”. This proposal aims to devise novel and effective approaches for securing Internet of Things (IoT) hardware against cutting edge Deep learning-based Power Side-channel Attacks (DeePSAs) using emerging devices. Congratulations to Dr. Soheil Salehi and welcome to UC Davis. This was a very competitive program and each university could receive up to two awards. There were 550 applications submitted across the country and 59 awards were made. UC Davis received a single award which will be hosted by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
