KANG G. SHIN (신강근)

I am the Kevin and Nancy O'Connor Professor of Computer Science, and the Founding Director of the Real-Time Computing Laboratory (RTCL) in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at The University of Michigan.

I am currently exploring various exciting research issues in the areas of computer networks and systems, security and privacy, mobile sensing and applications, as well as embedded or cyber-physical systems. We have also been using and/or developing machine learning, digital signal processing and control algorithms to address these issues. These research issues are often motivated by, and hence their results are applicable to,  real-life systems such as autonomous cars, smart phones and homes, smart connected communities, and human health & wellness.

I have led several major research projects, including:

oMobile wireless networking and computing, including cognitive-radio or software-defined wireless networks, 5G wireless LANs, mobile sensing and apps.

oComputation and network security and privacy, including location privacy protection, self-securing mobile handsets, botnets, malware classification, and application protection in untrusted environments.

o Cyber-physical systems by integrating real-time embedded applications and system SW with real-life physical systems like large-scale energy storage systems, ground and space vehicles; low-power embedded real-time OS, scheduling theory, middleware, and networks.

o Resilient and efficient cloud computing service and operation via virtualization-based server consolidation, replication and resource management.
