I am an assistant professor of cybersecurity in the department of computer science at the University of Georgia, and a member of the UGA Institute for Cybersecurity and Privacy. Before joining UGA, I was a post-doctoral researcher in Prof. Peng Liu’s cybersecurity lab at Penn State. My research interests cover a wide range of systems security, including mobile security and IoT systems security. I am especially interested in leveraging COTS hardware components/features to design and build systems that are more reliable and secure than solutions based on software alone.
I am now working on the security problems associated with IoT systems running on low-end microcontrollers.
Opening: I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students and visiting students to work on cybersecurity problems, especially IoT security. Please send me your CV if interested. Candidates are expected to have a solid background in system programming and operating systems.
