My current research in computing is focused on applying the decomposition theory of machines to the specialized areas of embedded computing, communication protocols, and theory of computation. My work is primarily concerned with improving security and fault tolerance using the several forms of decompositions (e.g., parallel, cascade, factorized, hierarchical) of machines and computational models.

I am fortunate to have collaborators at institutions, including Prof. L. Bossuet and Dr. B. Colombier of Univ. of Lyon/UJM at Laboratoire Hubert Curien, France. In the past, I worked with researchers at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Cambridge University/UK, SUIA/St. Petersburg/Russia, WINLAB/Rutgers Univ., and Samsung Research, mostly in the area of computing security (embedded system security, IP protection, security protocols/primitives, applied crypto, DRM).

Research Interests

  • Dependable computing

  • Security (security protocols, IP watermarking algorithms)

  • Fault tolerance (detection/diagnosis/masking algorithms)
