ISR alum Yan Sun wins NSF CAREER Award

ISR alum Yan Lindsay Sun has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. Sun is a former advisee of Professor K. J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR) who earned a Ph.D. from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in 2004. The award will fund her research, "Building Trust in Distributed Networks: Theories, Architecture and Applications." She is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rhode Island.

The goal of Sun's research is to improve network security and performance by developing a system-wide trust infrastructure. This project has several major components: an architectural design, a formal methodology for trust establishment, case studies, graduate and undergraduate education, and outreach to the community at large.

The NSF CAREER program fosters the career development of outstanding junior faculty, combining the support of research and education of the highest quality and in the broadest sense.
