ECE Research Featured on NSF Podcast

Associate professor Roman Lysecky, an expert in embedded electronic systems, is working hard to prevent hacks of implantable medical devices like pacemakers and insulin pumps. His team's technique uses runtime anomaly detection to catch 100 percent of mimicked malware attacks.

As Bob Karson noted in a recent episode of the NSF's Discovery Files podcast, these threats are, thankfully, still theoretical -- but ECE researchers are staying a heartbeat ahead of the hackers.
