I investigate security problems in real-time embedded systems
and apply solutions across the hardware-software interface.
My research has been supported by
federal grants from the
Department of Homeland Security,
National Science Foundation, and
Office of Naval Research, and
by industry gifts from
Northrop Grumman, Texas Instruments, Leidos, and Xilinx.
