I'm an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. My main research areas are in control and security of networked and cyber-physical systems. Prior to joining WPI, I received a BSE in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor (2007), an MS in Mathematics from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor (2008), and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington - Seattle (2014) under the supervision of Radha Poovendran and Linda Bushnell. My research has been recognized by awards including the IFIP William C. Carter Award (2010), IEEE WiOpt Best Paper Award (2012), finalist for IEEE CDC Student Best Paper Award (2012), University of Washington Center for Information Assurance and Cybersecurity Outstanding Research Award (2012), UW CIAC Outstanding Dissertation Award (2014), IEEE WiOpt Student Best Paper Award (2014), finalist for ACM ICCPS Best Paper Award (2016, 2018, 2020), IEEE GameSec Outstanding Paper Award (2018), an NSF CRII research initiation grant from the NSF CPS program (2017), an NSF CAREER award (2020), and an AFOSR YIP award (2021).
WBUR reported on (scroll down to 13th item at 20:04:50 mark) Andrew Clark, assistant professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, using the five-year, $500,000 CAREER Award to build algorithms and use machine learning that can identify and filter out erroneous information created when a hacker breaches a system’s typical first-line security measures, like firewalls, firmware protections, and automatic bug fixes.
