Research

My current cybersecurity research agenda focuses on the safety, resilience, and security of decentralized components, devices, system and processes from theoretical modeling, to simulation, to practical implementations. The research within CEDAR center lab includes development of information-theory based approaches to attacking (increasing), quantifying, and securing (reducing) information leakage in everything from Machine Learning models (PhD students Hu and Wolf, MS students Sloan, Manandhar & Moss) to complex cyber-physical and interconnected systems (PhD students Cooley & Johnson). In addition, the newly formed WABL lab looks to investigate and develop methods to determine, verify, and implement secure, robust, and resilient distributed ledger systems - from the gate-level to the software application and everything in-between.
