Bio

Bruce is currently pursuing a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University's Silicon Valley Campus. His work is generally in the area of wireless security at a system level. Particular problems of interest involve "intelligent" secure systems which apply cross-layer observation-based knowledge of networks to security problems. Bruce received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Kettering University, Flint, MI. His undergraduate thesis was titled Design of a Low Profile Vertically Polarized RF Antenna for Automotive Applications pursued jointly at Kettering University and Ford Motor Company.
