My research covers design and implementation aspects of security in embedded systems design. This includes secure protocols and cryptography implemented in embedded hardware and software and countermeasures against implementation attacks. I am interested in all abstraction levels of design, including circuits, hardware micro-architecture, firmware, and platform-specific software. I am also working on methodologies, with a focus on the trade-off between system performance, system cost, and system security. Selected Publications:
