Dr. Ioannis Savidis Granted Prestigious NSF Career Award

Dr. Ioannis Savidis, Assistant Professor in Drexel University's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been granted the prestigious CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation for his project, "Parameter Obfuscation: A Novel Methodology for the Protection of Analogy Intellectual Property." The six-year project is funded at over $500,000; its objective is to "explore techniques that enhance the security of an analog circuit from attacks such as reserve engineering and cloning, both of which lead to IP theft." Research and results will then be incorporated into workshops and a mentorship program for high school students, exposing these students to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) concepts through guidance with a faculty member.  

The NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program extends this award to young faculty who demonstrate great promise in research and education. 

Congratulations to Dr. Savidis on this major accomplishment!
