"Information security is something of a cat-and-mouse game: You try to detect; I try to evade," Craver says. And, in a field were the tiniest of tinkering leaves a trace, you need to think like an attacker. "The only way to figure out flaws in a security system is by figuring out how you'd break it.

Professor Fowler's Research Interests are: Emitter Location, Estimation Theory, Data Compression, Sensor Networks, Electronic Warfare Systems
Specializing in all aspects of information hiding in digital imagery, including watermarking for authentication, tamper detection, self-embedding, robust watermarking, steganography and steganalysis, forensic analysis of digital images (detection of forgeries) and advanced image processing and encryption techniques. My earlier research interests were in chaotic nonlinear dynamical systems and dynamical systems modeling.
Professor Klotzkin's research interests are: Photonics and optoelectronics; organic light emitters and detectors; semiconductor lasers and modulators. Applications of photonics for integrated sensors, microfluorescence, lab-on-a-chip and microfluidic sensors.
"My research interests are in the areas of signal processing in communications and wireless networks. My current work includes channel equalization, CDMA multiuser detection, OFDM modulation and transmission, cognitive radio networks, distributed wireless networks with cooperative transmissions. also work in wireless information assurance." - Professor Li
Free-space laser communication, quantum communication, optical sensors, holographic analysis and measurements
Professor Skormin's research interests: modern control theory and applications (motion control, pointing-acquisition-tracking systems in laser communication, novel robotics-based gimbals systems, high-performance hybrid laser positioning systems); computer network/information security (biological approach to system information security, detection of self-replication in malicious codes, immunocomputing); mathematical modeling and system optimization; technical diagnostics (system diagnostics for power generators and avionics)
Dr. Twigg's research group works in the broad area of analog and mixed-signal VLSI with an emphasis on reconfigurable and programmable IC design. Current research involves large-scale field-programmable analog arrays (FPAAs), rank modulation flash memories, capacitively coupled microphone interfaces and feedback controllers, and genetic algorithm-based analog system synthesis.
Professor Zahorian's research interests are: speech communication, real-time digital signal processing and applications of microprocessors to biomedical engineering.
