Dr. Aysu received his B.S degree in microelectronics engineering with a mathematics minor and his M.S degree in electrical engineering from Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer engineering from Virginia Tech. He was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Aysu conducts research on cybersecurity with an emphasis on hardware-based security. The focus of his research is the development of secure systems that prevent advanced cyber attacks targeting hardware vulnerabilities. To that end, his research interests cover applied cryptography, computer architecture, and digital hardware design. Dr. Aysu’s most recent work showed the first successful attacks on post-quantum key-exchange protocols, which was selected as the best paper runner-up at the International Conference on Hardware-Oriented Security and Trust (HOST’2018).
