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 mobile networks, systems and applications, security and privacy, as well as embedded or cyber-physical systems, especially semi-autonomous (human-in-the-loop) systems. We have also been using and/or developing machine learning, digital signal processing and control algorithms to address research issues associated with these systems. 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.
