Uttam Ghosh, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Cybersecurity

Data-driven Intelligence and Security for Cyber-physical Systems (DISCS) Lab, primarily focuses on designing and developing secure AI-based smart cyber-infrastructure for healthcare systems. The lab integrates software-defined networking (SDN), 5G, edge, fog, and cloud technologies along with AI tools for providing efficient and secure data communication and processing for intelligent healthcare and cyber-physical systems.

Objectives

  • Research and Engineering
    Our research will range from expanding trustworthy, reliable, explainable, fair, robust and secure ML algorithms and AI systems for CPS/IoT applications.
  • Education and Workforce Development
    We will educate, develop, and sustain a large and diverse workforce through public awareness, graduate and K-12 education, and outreach activities.
  • Broadening Participation
    A more diverse and inclusive community is essential to advancing the field of cybersecurity and AI/ML research and education.
