Research Focus

Dr. Chongyan Gu is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Electronic Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) at Queen’s University Belfast.

Dr. Gu has been granted an EPSRC New Investigator Award. Dr. Gu has a track record of producing industry-relevant research of commercial value. Her research into physical unclonable functions (PUFs) was licensed as part of a security architecture for electronic vehicle (EV) charging systems by LG-CNS, South Korea, and a number of defence companies have evaluated the PUF to identify and authenticate components in high security applications. Her team was the overall winner of INVENT 2015, a competition to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative ideas. She has significant international research collaboration experiences, e.g. EU FP7 Sparks project with Fraunhofer, Germany and KeyHAS project with ETRI, South Korea.

She is an IEEE Senior Member. She currently serves as an Associate Editor of IEEE TETC, technical programme committee members of many international conferences, including IEEE ISCAS, ASP-DAC, and AsianHOST, etc. She was invited to publish a paper in the Proceedings of the IEEE (IF: >10). The paper presented the first in-depth discussion of the security vulnerabilities in approximate computing. She was invited to give tutorials/talks to international conferences, such as, IEEE ASP-DAC 2020 on the topic of practical PUF design on FPGA, and HiPEAC 2023, etc. Dr Gu is an expert in hardware security, specifically physical unclonable functions (PUFs), true random number generator (TRNG), hardware Trojan detection, logic obfuscation circuit and machine learning attacks. https://dblp.org/pers/hd/g/Gu:Chongyan
