The DAISY Lab is led by Prof. Yingying (Jennifer) Chen. You can always stop by her office at Core 506, 96 Frelinghuysen Rd Piscataway to have an inspired research discussion!
As wireless and sensor networks continue to have an important impact on our life and eventually become a part of our social fabric, the network infrastructure will increasingly become the tempting targets for malicious attacks. Further, with the huge amount of information transmitted over the networks and eventually displayed in the Internet, the main question that people asked about is what should constitute “fair use” of the information. The Data Analysis and Information SecuritY (DAISY) Laboratory focuses on both addressing the problems in information security, system privacy, and data integrity using statistical approaches and machine learning techniques, as well as building test beds to facilitate research in these areas.
Current Research Areas
- Cyber Security and Privacy
- Mobile Healthcare and its Security Issues
- Mobile Computing
- Pervasive Computing
- Wireless Networks and Sensor Networks
1. CardioCam: Leveraging Camera on Mobile Devices to Verify Users While Their Heart is Pumping
2. VibWrite: Towards Finger-input Authentication on Ubiquitous Surfaces via Physical Vibration
3. BigRoad: Scaling Road Data Acquisition for Dependable Self-Driving
4. Cracking the PIN Number Using Wearables
5. Fine-grained Sleep Monitoring Leveraging Home Wi-Fi Networks
6. Look Up: Enabling Pedestrian Safety Services via Shoe Sensing

Research projects in Daisy Lab are supported by a set of powerful workstations. Each workstation has a high-end Intel Xeon processor, 32GM RAM, and 1TB Solid State Drive (SSD). One of the workstations is equipped with a powerful graphics card, NVIDIA Quadro GV100, to facilitate artificial intelligence (AI) training/inferencing. The machines are configured with either Windows or Linux and installed with Python, TensorFlow library, and CUDA for the development of machine learning-based algorithms/applications.
