Joining CISPA in August

In August 2018, I will leave SUTD and join CISPA as faculty member. CISPA is a German research center focusing on world-class security research, headed by Michael Backes. CISPA is currently in process to become a member of the Helmholtz Association and is planned to grow quickly in the upcoming years, aiming to become the leading security research center in Europe. CISPA is co-located with the University of Saarbrucken, which is recognized to be one of the best places (top 5, according to CHE) in Germany for computer science degrees (both graduate and undergrad). In particular, it has a dedicated undergrad program in cybersecurity!

I will continue to work on security topics related to Cyber-Physical systems in general, and Industrial Control Systems, Internet of Things, and physical layer wireless in particular. I have funding for several PhD students with attractive salary. I am now looking for interested candidates with strong undergrad GPA (or ideally a MSc) in computer science/engineering or related fields. If you are interested, please send me a short statement about your motivation, and a CV.

I am sad to leave my fellow faculty members at SUTD and Singapore, but look forward to this excellent opportunity in Germany!
