My research interests are focused on development of scalable and efficient machine learning algorithms on resource-constrained platforms. In my research group, we enable realization of end-to-end frameworks that address robustness and real-world practicality. The research directions can be broadly categorized into the following topics:
Robust Automated and Adaptive Learning
Security and Privacy
Holistic Co-Design and Optimization of Data / Algorithm / SW (/HW)
Cryptographically Secure Privacy-Preserving Computing
Robust Distributed and Federated Learning
I'm giving the IEEE CEDA Keynote at ICCAD 2022
I'm giving the Keynote talk at IEEE AsianHOST 2022
I chaired the program for NDSS 2022 (together with my wonderful co-chair Wenyuan Xu)!
Congratulations to ACES Lab Post-doc, Dr. Zahra Ghodsi, who will join Purdue ECE as an Assistant Professor in 2023.
My (single-author) paper on provably secure hardware obfuscation published in IEEE Trans. on Information Forensics and Security 2012 is among the 7 papers selected this year for TOP PICKS in Hardware and Embedded Systems Security all times!
Our MICS center had it's official launch Summit in October 2018! Go MICS!
