Research Statement

In the ever-evolving landscape of modern computing, the vulnerabilities of both cloud and edge computing infrastructure have expanded, exposing them to a higher risk of cyber attacks. To fortify these platforms effectively, it is crucial to prioritize the security of the physical platform where data and workloads are executed and accessed. An indispensable strategy involves concentrating on the first layer of defense, providing initial protection and instilling trust in higher-layer security controls.

Within the realm of my research, I am delving into Embedded Platform Security architectures to actualize a layered defense-in-depth security model. This innovative approach entails leveraging diverse hardware and software defenses to uphold fundamental data security principles—confidentiality, integrity, and availability—whether the data is at rest, in motion, or in use. A key focus of my research lies in runtime platform security, which encompasses risk-oriented cybersecurity engineering. This involves proactively identifying and mitigating anomalous system behaviors through the deployment of proactive countermeasures, thereby reinforcing the overall security posture of the system.
