Labs and Centers
Center for the Advancement of Secure Systems and Information Assurance

The Center for the Advancement of Secure Systems and Information Assurance (CASSIA) is a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education and National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research. The mission of the center is to foster collaboration and act as a catalyst for research, education, and entrepreneurship in information assurance and cybersecurity. Please contact Dr. Susanne Wetzel for more information.

Computational Systems Biology Laboratory

Computational Systems Biology is an emerging discipline that studies complex biological systems where large numbers of diverse and multifunctional elements interact in selective ways. It combines experimental and computational research making it intrinsically interdisciplinary. The combination of computational models and theoretical studies provides a solid foundation to push the envelope in our understanding of life.

Database and Information Management Laboratory

The Database and Information Management Laboratory (DBLab) focuses on the development of information infrastructures and data management systems for efficiently and securely managing large volumes of data. In particular, we are actively working on both the traditional database paradigm as well as new opportunities for crossover and collaboration between data management and other fields in computer science. Topics of interest for our group in this context include but are not limited to:

  • Security and privacy of data in DBMS
  • Spatio-temporal data management
  • Structured data management
