Signal Processing and Communication Education Research

In the Optoelectronics Research Lab we study the optical properties and charge carrier dynamics of different semiconductor materials, mainly nanostructures and or quantum dots.  With our tunable ultrafast pulsed laser system we conduct measurements such as Photoluminescence, Time Resolved Photoluminescence, degenerate and white light probe Transient Absorption Spectroscopy, and THZ spectroscopy on our samples to better understand and improve their properties for use in Lasers, detectors, solar cells and other electronic and optoelectronic devices.

The research focus is on designing secure and privacy preserving machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing models. The research spans applications of these models to wearable devices, biometrics, attack-averse authentication, and side-channel attack formulation.
