Ulukus Receives $400K NSF Grant
Professor Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR) received a $400K wireless security grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award is a joint 4-year grant between Ulukus and her two colleagues, Aylin Yener from Pennsylvania State University and Randall Berry from Northwestern University, totaling $1.2 million.
The award, titled “Incentive Compatible Wireless Security,” will go toward the professors’ project that began in October 2013. Their research goal is to create a practical setup for wireless security by amalgamating information theory with the theory of incentives to provide secure wireless cyber access.
The abstract of the project lists specific research topics being addressed:
Ulukus’ research interests include wireless communication theory and networking, network information theory for wireless networks, signal processing for wireless communications, information-theoretic physical-layer security and energy harvesting communications.
