For Prospective Graduate Students

There are several RA openings for graduate students in my lab at Clemson University. These positions are supported with a monthly stipend and tuition wavier. Students are expected to closely work with me on several research projects on automotive security and privacy. Applicants with strong motivation and a degree in related fields (e.g., CS/CE/EE) are preferred. Research background in security and computer vision are desired.

I am currently looking for two (2) Ph.D. students for Fall 2023 who are interested in working on autonomous vehicle security (computer vision experience is a plus) or Android Automotive security (Android experience is a plus).

Applicants are encouraged to send the following supporting materials (combined in a single PDF) to me before submitting their formal applications.

  • Full resume (required).
  • Undergraduate and/or graduate transcripts (unofficial, required).
  • Personal statement (required).
  • GRE/TOEFL reports.
  • Publications or manuscripts.
  • Github/Gitlab/Bitbucket account.

Clemson Students

Students enrolled in Clemson are very welcome if interested in cyber security and/or adversarial machine learning. Please send an email with the full resume or stop by at my office (215 McAdams Hall).
I will be offering a Creative Inquiry course (CPSC1990/3990) in Spring 2023. Students from all years are encouraged to register for this class! Please also send me an email if you enroll.


Limited funding opportunities for Summer 2023!

If you want to do an internship with me, please contact me with your interests, your preferred timeline for the internship, and your level of funding. Doing an internship with me is practically “free”, aside from the cost of living in Clemson. If you come from outside the U.S., the immigration services will require that you have sufficient funds to support yourself, though. If you require a U.S. Visa, please contact me early, so that this can be arranged on time!

If you already have funding, then I am happy to advise you on a project of your own choosing, as long as it broadly aligns with my interests.
