Speaker at our Cybersecurities of the Future event
Dr. Chongyan Gu is a Lecturer in the School of Electronic Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) at Queen’s University Belfast, and a member of the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) within Queen’s Global Research Institute of Electronics, Communications & Information Technology (ECIT). Her research focuses on developing advanced hardware security methodologies for enhancing the robustness, reliability, resource efficiency and resilience of hardware devices. Dr. Gu has a history of producing industry-relevant research of commercial value. Her PhD research led to the development of a novel lightweight PUF design demonstrator. She was subsequently part of a team that was awarded the overall winner of the INVENT Award 2015, which recognises inventions from Northern Ireland of high commercial potential, for her ’PicoPUF’ technology, which was licensed as part of a security architecture for electronic vehicle (EV) charging systems, by LG-CNS, South Korea. She has significant international research collaboration experiences, e.g., EU FP7 Sparks project with Fraunhofer, Germany and KeyHAS project with ETRI, South Korea. She currently serves as a technical programme committee member of the IEEE Circuits and Systems for Communications (CASCOM) committee and conference video editor of IEEE nanotechnology Council (NTC). Dr Gu is an expert in hardware security, specifically physical unclonable functions (PUFs), security in approximate computing, true random number generator (TRNG), hardware Trojan detection, and machine learning attacks.
