Assistant Professor of Computer Science Dong “Kevin” Jin has been named as a recipient of a Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
Similar to the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, the YIP is a prestigious award given to junior scientists and engineers at research institutions across the United States who show exceptional ability and promise for conducting basic research.
Jin’s research is concerned with the study of dynamic data-driven application systems (DDDAS) methodology to meet challenges in cyber-secure and cyber-resilient critical energy infrastructures for the Air Force of the future. Jin and his team are developing a DDDAS-based Cyber-Resilient and Attack-Secure Framework for Trustworthy Industrial Control Systems (DDDAS-CRAFTS). The core components of DDDAS-CRAFTS include the novel underlying Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based communication infrastructure with several DDDAS-based modules to enable a secure and resilient power system.
