The Data Analysis and Information Security (DAISY) Laboratory focuses on addressing the problems in information security, system privacy, and data integrity using statistical approaches and machine learning techniques, as well as building test beds to facilitate research in these areas.

Three students in DAISY LabAs wireless and sensor networks continue to have an important impact on everyday life and integrate themselves in the social fabric, network infrastructures will increasingly become tempting targets for malicious attacks. Furthermore, with the huge amount of information transmitted over networks and eventually displayed in the Internet, the main question that people ask concerns what should constitute "fair use" of the information. 

DAISY Lab Research Areas

  • Cyber Security and Privacy
  • Mobile Healthcare and Computing
  • Mobile Computing
  • Pervasive Computing
  • Wireless Networks and Sensor Networks
