Are you interested in continuing your studies and contributing to the field of SmartHome security and privacy? If so, you’ve come to the right place! The SPLICE team is an interdisciplinary research team spanning seven institutions. Our researchers work in four main areas: Systems and networks; Internet of Things; Sociology, law and policy; and Human-Computer Interaction. Our goal is to continue building our team with a focus on inter-disciplinary collaborations. You can find more information about the teams that are recruiting below!
Professor Kevin Kornegay at Morgan State University
- I am currently looking for two or three master’s students and one to two PhD students.
- My research focus is on Privacy Enabled Security.
- You can learn more about my lab and our research here.
- If you are interested, apply here!
Professor Michel Kornegay at Morgan State University
- I am currently looking for two master’s students and one PhD student.
- Our research focuses on the development of device fingerprints based upon the RF wireless emissions from IoT devices found in a smart home. We develop the fingerprints by collecting I/Q data samples and extracting transient, channel or steady-state features unique to the device transmitter. We apply machine learning algorithms on the features to help create a device fingerprint. We are looking for students who are highly motivated, critical thinkers with exposure on the following topics: RF analog electronics, Matlab, communication theory, digital signal processing and machine learning.

Professor David Kotz at Dartmouth College
- I am currently seeking a PhD student to join my team beginning fall 2022. If you are interested, you need to apply to our PhD program by December 15, 2021. In our system of graduate admissions, faculty do not admit students directly.
- You must have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science or related field, with some experience in building software prototypes, conducting experimental research, analyzing experimental data, and writing scientific publications. The best candidates will have some experience in one of the above domains, or in pervasive computing, mobile computing, embedded systems, machine learning, security, privacy, or some combination.
- In addition to collaborating with ten SPLICE professors and their students, you would have the opportunity to engage more broadly with the Department of Computer Science (CS) and with the cybersecurity community at Dartmouth via the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS), providing extended opportunities for learning and collaboration.
