In her computer engineering lab, Assistant Professor Tamara Silbergleit Lehman and her team are exploring ways to make computing devices more secure, while also maintaining performance.  

“We all love the way that our phones work — as fast as we need them to and as responsive as we need them to,” she says. “But that doesn’t really matter if you can’t trust your device.”

They focus on security at the hardware level, including a new project on how to prevent attacks on the GPUs in health diagnostic devices.

Check out the video to learn more about what she looks for in her graduate students and the “happy, collaborative” environment students will find in electrical, computer and energy engineering at CU Boulder.
