The ISCAAS lab undertakes cutting edge research projects related to embedded and cyber-physical systems, secure and trustworthy systems, intelligent systems, parallel computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and computer vision. The research projects in the ISCAAS lab target practical applications. The ISCAAS mission is to produce excellent researchers and successful professionals for both academia and industry. The projects in ISCAAS lab have been sponsored by various funding agencies including the National Science Foundation (NSF), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)/National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), and Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC).
The ISCAAS lab is currently undertaking the following projects:
The ISCAAS lab has three Ph.D. research position openings for Spring 2024: one in the area of cybersecurity (focus on post-quantum cryptography, hardware security, AI security, and multimedia encryption), one in the area of computer vision (focus on robotics and computer vision in agriculture), and one in the area of deep learning hardware (focus on acceleration of deep learning models). Candidates who have done their Masters in Computer Science/Electrical Engineering/Computer Engineering (or are about to complete) with a thesis in relevant areas are especially encouraged to apply. Prospective students should have taken courses and should have done some projects in the relevant area to the position they are applying for. Candidates with prior research publications in the respective areas are highly encouraged to apply. Prospective candidates should send their CV and any other information such as published papers or completed projects that will strengthen their application to Dr. Arslan Munir (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please only send the email if you have given TOEFL (and obtained a score of 22 or above in each section) or IELTs (and obtained a score of 6.5 or above in all sections) and have already given GRE or are planning to give GRE. Due to the enormous number of applications I receive, I may not be able to respond to all the applicants and only the applicants who are selected for interview may receive a response.
