Furkan Aydin

My research interests encompass side-channel attacks, countermeasures for post-quantum and homomorphic encryption cryptosystems, FPGA design, and fault injection attacks.

Arsalan Malik

I am keen towards side channel attacks and creating defences for FPGAs used in standalone/shared (cloud) environment using cryptographic techniques.

Digvijay Anand

I am currently working on secure ML accelerator design.

Ashley Kurian

I am currently working on physical side channel attacks targeting the extraction of hyperparameters and parameters of neural networks.

Zinedine Hamoudi

I am interested in side-channel analysis of lattice-based post-quantum cryptography.

Rahul Magesh

I am working on hardware implementations of cryptographic algorithms.

Steve Qiu

I aim to identify the side channel vulnerabilities on post quantum algorithms and provide mitigation on these vulnerabilities.
