2022 CSE Graduate Student Honors Competition highlights outstanding research
CSE held its nineteenth annual CSE Graduate Student Honors Competition on November 9, 2022. The competition recognizes top research done by PhD students at CSE and is the culmination of a process that narrows a field of entrants to a handful of finalists, each of whom gives a summary presentation on an area of their research.
The 2022 Honors Competition was sponsored by industry partner Aptiv, a global technology company that develops safer, greener, and more connected solutions which enable the future of mobility.
CSE faculty and a representative from Aptiv ranked the finalists’ presentations.
The top presentation in the 2022 competition was “Mitigating Microarchitectural Vulnerabilities to Improve Reliability and Security in the Cloud,” given by Kevin Loughlin, who represented CSE’s Computer Engineering Lab.
