ISR News Story

Alum Wade Trappe is named IEEE Fellow

Alumnus Wade Trappe, a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rutgers University, and associate director of its Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), has been named a 2014 Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) "for contributions to information and communication security."

At Maryland, Trappe earned his M.S. in 1999 and a Ph.D. in applied mathematics and scientific computing in 2002; he was affiliated with both ISR and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and was advised by Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE). He has become a nationally recognized authority in wireless network security.

His research group's recent focus has been to explore non-traditional approaches to security by re-examining the conceptual definitions of security and privacy. To devise new solutions, his group applies a mix of mathematical tools and experimental design. Trappe is currently applying his philosophies to enhance the state-of-the-art in wireless security (particularly, in integrating physical layer security into wireless systems) and developing protocols for a secure future Internet.
