Bülent Yener





Nimit Dhulekar (PhD Candidate)

Research interests include image processing, computer vision and time-based image analysis.




Jeremy Blackthorne (PhD Candidate)

Research interests include provably secure software obfuscation and tamper-resistance.



Andrew Zonenberg (PhD Candidate)

Research interests (among many) include security and privacy, embedded systems.



Aritra Chowdhury (PhD Candidate)

Research interests include data mining and applications of machine learning in biomedical image processing.



Brennan Cozzens (MS Candidate)

Research interests include computer security.



Jacob Shedd (MS Candidate)

Research interests include exploring and analyzing the behavior and patterns of out of order executions. Manipulating them to create a covert channel that can be deployed in the cloud environment. Discussing the optimization and security of this channel.



Alexei Bulazel (MS Candidate)

Alexei is working on developing ways of fingerprinting commercial automated malware analysis systems. Contemporary techniques used in detecting analysis environments are discovered through heuristic trial and error testing, and Alexei is working on formalizing a method of conducting automated fingerprinting to avoid this painful process.



Sophia D'Antoine (MS Candidate)

Research interests include cross-vm covert channels and cloud security.
