PhD Theses

Rastogi, Aseem (University of Maryland, College Park), “Language-based techniques for practical and trustworthy secure multi-party computations” (2016) Advisor: Hicks, Michael

Xu, Lifan. (University of Delaware), “Android malware classification using parallelized machine learning methods” (2016) Advisor: Cavazos, John

Android is the most popular mobile operating system with a market share of over 80%. Due to its popularity and also its open source nature, Android is now the platform most targeted by malware, creating an urgent need for effective defense mechanisms to protect Android-enabled devices.

Yang, Fan. (University of Maryland, College Park), “Leveraging Multiple Features for Image Retrieval and Matching” (2016) Advisor: Davis, Larry S.

Simpkins, Jonathan (University of Notre Dame), “Modeling, approximation, and estimation of spatially-varying blur in photographic systems” (2016) Advisor: Stevenson, Robert L.

Zhu, Yu (West Virginia University), “Multi-Modality Human Action Recognition” (2016) Advisor: Guo, Guodong

Kong, Long, (University of California, Los Angeles), “RF Synthesis without Inductors” (2016) Advisor: Razavi, Behzad

Recent developments in RF receiver design have eliminated all on-chip inductors except for that used in the local oscillator. This dissertation addresses the “last inductor” problem and proposes both integer-N and fractional-N synthesizer architectures that achieve a phase noise and figure of merit (FOM) comparable to those of LC-VCO-based realizations.

Alturkostani, Hani Eftikhar (University of Idaho), “Mitigation Strategies for Safety Applications in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks Subjected to Jamming” (2016) Advisor: Krings, Axel

Worm, AnthonyView Profile (State University of New York at Binghamton), “Prioritized Grammar Enumeration: A novel method for symbolic regression” (2016) Advisor: Chiu, Kenneth

Sayler, Andy (University of Colorado at Boulder) “Securing Secrets and Managing Trust in Modern Computing Applications” (2016) Advisor: Dirk Grunwald

Debarati Kundu (The University of Texas at Austin), “Subjective and Objective Quality Evaluation of Synthetic and High Dynamic Range Images” (2016) Advisor: < a href= “”> Evans, Brian L.
