Alumni Accomplishment - Himanshu Thapliyal ‘11

February 18, 2019

Department of Computer Science and Engineering alumni, and now University of Kentucky assistant professor, Himanshu Thapliyal has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award.

Thapliyal’s project is titled “Utilizing Principles of Energy Recovery Computing for Low-Energy and DPA-Resistant IoT Devices.” It focuses on the “[development of] circuit design techniques for energy-recovery circuits ... to facilitate low-power implementation of block cipher for mobile Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, where reducing power consumption is critical.”

Thapliyal hopes the results of this project will “make a strong case for industry adoption of [energy recovery] computing for the design of low-energy and secure IoT devices” and also “broaden graduate, undergraduate, and minority and underrepresented participation in cyber and hardware security research and education.”
