Innovating a decentralized framework for secure communication

At the forefront of advancing a decentralized framework for reconstructing data from under sampled and noisy signals is assistant professor Shana Moothedath. Her research not only delves into the complexities of efficient data reconstruction but also prioritizes the security of this process.

Hannah Nelson: Outstanding senior in electrical engineering

“I am excited to be a part of the energy transition to renewable resources because electricity is essential to society, and it relates to many other global issues. We have this gift of plentiful resources such as wind and sunlight, and it’s inspiring to think about how that will change the future of energy. Also, as a woman in engineering, I look forward to encouraging and mentoring other women looking to become electrical engineers.”

Varun Prasanna gains confidence, skills at CyPy

“A coding bootcamp is also a great way to build relationships with like-minded people of similar coding experience, so working together is great when you get stuck. The same idea can be applied to undergrad research, as learning something new is always beneficial, as you never know when you will need to use it,” Prasanna said.

Iowa Cyber Hub enlists ‘Cybersecurity Ambassadors’ to help their communities

“I’ve always had a goal of every Iowan understanding basic cybersecurity. But there’s only one of me and 3 million of them,” said Doug Jacobson. Soon there will be many more cyber guardians like Jacobson in Iowa as a legion of trained volunteers help their communities learn cybersecurity.
