You can always stop by Prof. Yingying Chen's office at Burchard Building 210 to have an inspired research discussion!

As wireless and sensor networks continue to have an important impact on our life and eventually become a part of our social fabric, the network infrastructure will increasingly become the tempting targets for malicious attacks. Further, with the huge amount of information transmitted over the networks and eventually displayed in the Internet, the main question that people asked about is what should constitute "fair use" of the information. The Data Analysis and Information SecuritY (DAISY) Laboratory  focuses on both addressing the problems in information security, system privacy, and data integrity using statistical approaches and machine learning techniques, as well as building test beds to facilitate research in these areas.

Current Research Areas:

  • Cyber Security and Privacy
    • wireless security
    • smartphone privacy
    • secure localization
    • smart grid security
    • cognitive radio security
  • Mobile Healthcare and its Security Issues
  • Mobile Computing
    • mobile social networks
    • vehicular applications
  • Pervasive Computing
    • indoor localization
    • device-free passive localization
    • Location Based Services
    • Internet of Things (LoT)
  • Wireless Networks and Sensor Networks
