Prof. Zhang is looking for highly-motivated Ph.D. students to join her lab. There are multiple openings starting Fall 2021.
Our research spans the areas of digital storage and communications, hardware architecture design, security, and signal processing. Our research translates theoretical advancements to highly efficient practical implementations through integrated algorithmic and architectural optimizations. The focuses of current research include coding schemes and system architecture design for next-generation memories and digital communications, hardware security, homomorphic encryption, post-quantum cryptography, and machine learning. As it has been proved from Dr. Zhang’s academic and industry experience, such research leads to novel techniques and designs that have great impacts on practical systems. Students in this research area are highly valued by both academic institutes and high-tech companies.
Good math background is required. Prior experience on error-correcting coding, cryptography, digital logic design, security, or related topics is preferred.
Interested students may send CV and transcript in pdf to zhang.8952 at osu.edu. General application can be submitted through
and the deadline can be extended.
Sometimes, I may not be able to reply to your inquires, but I will keep them on file until your full application is received.
