Gang Qu




Dr. Qu received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from UCLA, both in Computer Science. Previously, he had studied Mathematics in the Univerisy of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and the University of Oklahoma.

Dr. Qu is the co-director of the Embedded System Research Laboratory and the Wireless Sensor Laboratory. His primary research interests are in the area of embedded systems and VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) CAD (Computer Aided Design) with focus on low power system design and hardware related security and trust. He studies optimization and combinatorial problems and applies his theoretical discovery to applications in VLSI CAD, wireless sensor network, bioinformatics, and cybersecurity.

Dr. Qu and his research group are sponsored by AFOSR, ARO, DARPA, NSA-LTS, NSF, ONR, USDA; Cisco, Fujitsu Research, and Microsoft Research.

In this course, we will study security and trust from the hardware perspective. Upon completing the course, students will understand the vulnerabilities in current digital system design flow and the physical attacks to these systems. They will learn that security starts from hardware design and be familiar with the tools and skills to build secure and trusted hardware.
