CCI Research Areas
CCI RESEARCH AREAS
Research initiatives are at the very heart of CCI’s mission. As shown below, UNC Charlotte’s focus on research in the computing arena ranges from configuration analytics and automation capabilities, to strategies and new technologies for innovation in computing and informatics education, to applied robotics and sensing research for Homeland Security, to using applied research to address our society’s defense, intelligence, and security challenges.
RESEARCH CENTERS & INSTITUTES
The Center for Computational Intelligence to Predict Health and Environmental Risks (CIPHER)
The Center for Computational Intelligence to Predict Health and Environmental Risks (CIPHER) focuses on computational and empirical research to counter the spread of current and emerging infectious diseases and addresses some of the most vexing societal challenges, including antibiotic resistance, food safety and ecosystem health.
Cyber Defense and Network Assurability Center
The Cyber Defense and Network Assurability (CyberDNA) Center offers high-impact quality research and education in network security, defense, assurability, and privacy. Specific domains of interest include: assurable and usable network security configuration, security automation, security evaluation and optimization, security policy synthesis, and problem/threat diagnosis. In addition, CyberDNA seeks novel scalable authentication, accountability and privacy techniques for emerging technologies as well as critical infrastructure networks. The CyberDNA offers an excellent educational environment through conferences, seminars, mentoring, and security labs and test beds, which attracts many graduate and undergraduate students to pursue rigorous research.
