Prospective graduate students
Lab members explore theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of computer design, spanning a broad range of hardware topics, including embedded systems design, hardware security issues, computer architecture and data centers architecture, computer-aided design, testing and validation. The research breadth also encompasses software layers close to hardware: operating systems and compilers.

Energy efficiency in self-driving cars
PhD student Vidushi Goyal is working with Prof. Reetuparna Das to make electronics more energy efficient in personal devices and in autonomous vehicles.
Sonic Cyber Attacks on MEMS Accelerometers
PhD student Timothy Trippel is working with Prof. Kevin Fu to demonstrate how specially crafted sounds can be used to launch acoustic injection attacks against the sensors in many IoT devices.
Remote attack on temperature sensors threatens safety of incubators, industry
The researchers demonstrated that an adversary could remotely manipulate the temperature sensor measurements without directly tampering with the targeted system.
New attack on autonomous vehicle sensors creates fake obstacles
Up to this point, no attacks had been discovered targeting a car’s LiDAR system—but a major new finding from researchers at the University of Michigan has demonstrated what that might…
Creating more efficient data centers for AI
Tang’s project will redesign data center systems to support large-scale use of hardware accelerators to meet future computational demand.
