Security for Healthcare Internet of Things

The primary objective of this project is to investigate vulnerabilities, security threats and intrusions on Healthcare IoT systems, and design intrusion detection and prevention mechanisms to mitigate cyber-attacks on such systems. Read more

Cyber Security and Resilience

In this research project, we are going to work on monitoring and analysis of adversity and changes in the communication networks and services using machine learning and artificial intelligence approaches. Read more

Enabling Massive Wireless Connectivity for the Internet of Things

The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to an increasing demand for wireless access solutions capable of connecting low-power devices over large areas with low data rates. Read more

Software Quality Measurement

Software engineering professionals and researchers need better measures of code quality. Professionals need better indicators of the effects of their changes on overall system quality. Read more

Evidence Standards for Software Engineering and Computer Science

Peer review—the foundation of science—is ineffective, unreliable, prejudiced, and opaque. It can only be fixed by transitioning to more structured review processes in which reviewers evaluate papers against specific acceptance criteria tailored to a paper’s individual research methodology (e.g. Read more

Hybrid Teams and the Future of Work

Most software companies are either considering a hybrid workforce strategy (employees work partly remotely, partly on-site) or have already adopted one. Read more

Next Generation Software Quality Analysis and Refactoring

Source code analysis, code quality issue identification, and refactoring have been explored extensively in the last two decades. Despite the progress, the existing methods and tools lack efficiency, rigor, extensible support for issue identification, and comprehensive support for potential refactorings. Read more

Safer Smarter Elevators

In collaboration with industry partners, Solucore Atlantic Inc. we look to create safer, smarter elevators. To apply for this project, you must have had previous experience with 3D printing, fabrication, maker technology (e.g., Raspberry Pi, Arduino). Read more

Mixed Reality Games for Change
