Personal profile

Research Focus

Dr. Chongyan Gu is a Lecturer in the School of Electronic Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) at Queen’s University Belfast. Her research into physical unclonable functions (PUFs) has been utilised as part of a security architecture for electronic vehicle (EV) charging systems, licensed by LG-CNS, South Korea, and was also licensed for evaluation by a UK defence company. 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 a technical committee member of IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS). She was invited to publish a paper in the Proceedings of the IEEE (IF: >10). She has co-authored two research book chapters published by IET in 2016 and Springer in 2018, respectively. She has successfully organised two conference special sessions (IEEE APCCAS in 2018 and ACM GLSVLSI in 2020). She was invited to give tutorial/talks to international conferences, such as, IEEE ASP-DAC 2020 on the topic of practical PUF design on FPGA. 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
