I started my Masters of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Calgary in Fall 2020. I will be finishing my classes by Winter 2021 and starting my thesis in Spring 2021.
I chose to write my thesis with a focus on 5G security in wireless communications because security is the most important resource for future IoT. I've read a lot of cases where people have been deeply affected by security breaches and want to better protect engineering projects in the future. The current wireless channel is insecure, in the future 5G wireless channels will handle massive amounts of data. A lot of this data may be safety critical messages. In this way, I hope my reseearch protects everyday users and also ensures they have power over their privacy.
