Following are sample research projects that provide some insight into his areas of interest:

- Secure and Trusted Semiconductor Microelectronic Integrated Circuits (ICs)

Semiconductor Integrated Circuits (ICs) are essential in modern technology applications, including microelectronics, critical smart infrastructure, IoT consumer electronics, connected aerial and ground vehicles, radar, sensors, military applications, and communication networking devices. The increase in demand with inadequate workforce and infrastructure in domestic production, as well as the reliance on a limited number of trusted semiconductor vendors to meet technological demands, has led to the globalization of the semiconductor IC supply chain. The IC semiconductor integrated circuits' life cycle includes specification, foundry/clean room fabrication, packaging, and testing. Vendors across the globe engage in semiconductor IC manufacturing design, fabrication, testing, validation, and integration. This globalized supply chain introduces the involvement of untrusted entities, blurring the lines of IC assurance and trust to the forefront. The emergence of malicious hardware design alterations, whether integrated during chip design, fabrication, or packaging, poses a significant threat. Supply chain hardware attacks include hardware Trojans, fault injections, physical tampering, side-channel analysis, and their potential negative impact on system reliability and operability. Additionally, these attacks can lead to the possible stealing/leaking of secret information, destroying operational deployment. Our research in this area aims to propose new security approaches to countermeasures against such attacks, as the current approach relies on trust in the design house or foundry. We explore novel "Zero Trust" strategies throughout the design and fabrication process to confront the menace of hardware attacks targeting COTS components, PCB designs, FPGA/ASICs, microprocessors, and SRAM Memory devices.

-  Heterogeneous System Integration (HSI) and Advanced Packaging Security 

Chip design and integration are essential for Heterogeneous System Integration (HSI). For example, AI applications utilize Heterogeneous 2.5-D and 3-D system integration to develop efficient and low-power computing and memory technology design. System integration fosters enhanced compaction in interconnect length, reducing delays and power consumption. This innovation further facilitates stacking multiple planes, dedicating them to specific functions such as digital/imaging signal processing, memory, interconnection, and communication applications. Our research focuses on Secure, Trusted, and Assured Heterogeneous System Integration and Packaging. This includes novel AI-assisted design approaches, lightweight and low-power hardware security measures, and authentication primitives to ensure trust in HSI. We analyze the impact of diverse physical attacks, such as hardware Trojans, fault injections, and physical tampering, and propose innovative techniques like lightweight PUFs, design obfuscation, and side channel resistant Designs to counter such hardware security threats, thereby bolstering the reliability and assurance of system-in-package components.

-  Mitigation of Hardware Side Channel Attacks

Semiconductor integrated circuits (ICs) are vulnerable to both invasive and non-invasive hardware attacks, including laser/optical probing, fault injection, and electromagnetic side-channel (EM) attacks. Our research interests explore an ML-assisted approach for the identification and mitigation of hardware vulnerabilities utilized by EM side-channel leakage attacks. EM-side channel emissions constitute a significant avenue for data leakage, jeopardizing the security of hardware devices. These emissions manifest in forms such as electromagnetic (EM), power, or thermal signals and can be exploited by attackers to extract secure and private information from hardware devices. Current research shows that existing ML approaches rely heavily on static techniques to localize side channel leakage and require assistance to detect complex patterns caused by side channel leakage attacks. Furthermore, these approaches need more resilience against adversarial ML attacks. We focus on designing hardware with robust countermeasures against EM side-channel attacks to mitigate such hardware security challenges. To overcome these shortcomings, we propose developing a robust ML-assisted security framework for enhanced data feature extraction and attention-based fusion modeling. This framework is poised to fortify hardware security and trust against physical side-channel attacks, explicitly targeting secret keys and hardware-based identification leakage.
