Grad Student Maddie Lu returned to Princeton this past fall to finish a project she first started as an undergraduate in Prof. Paul Prucnal’s lab. Lu worked on communications device to help safeguard US soldiers in the battlefield. The goal of the device is to enable wireless communications systems to both transmit and receive signals in the same frequency band without interfering with each other. Princeton’s recent special status recognition as a hub for cybersecurity research by the federal government opens the door for more research like Lu’s. As a hub for cybersecurity, the University is also designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research. The program is administered by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). At Princeton, the program will be administered by the University’s Center for Networks Science and Applications. You can read more about the programs on the University main page.
