Hosting Music Night

I was so excited about the great event we hosted in our department. ECEGSA hosted a music night at ECE Kaiser Building. It was a glorious night full of joy with our talented musicians. I never really knew we have lots of gems in our department. Such events will encourage our students to follow their interests and create special memories in our department while studying.

While serving the GSA executive office, I look forward to serving more events of such that can bring us closer.

DynPolAC: Dynamic Policy-based Access Control for IoT Systems

Near-future IoT systems are comprised of moving objects such as Self-driving Cars (SDC) and Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAV). DynPolAC is an authorization framework for dynamic IoT systems where there are <1s query-reply interactions. DynPolAC is presenting in the 23rd IEEE Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing (PRDC 2018), this year in Taiwan.
