ECE students got up bright and early Thursday morning to meet the latest member of the faculty: Dr. Daniel Holcomb.


Thursday, January 29, 8:30 – 9:30 AM, at M5 (lower level of Marcus Hall – Room 5)


Before arriving in Amherst this winter, Dr. Holcomb was as a research fellow at the University of Michigan, where he did research on medical security, embedded systems and security, and approximate computing. His research interests also include physical unclonable functions, cyber-physical systems, applied formal methods, and VLSI design. His Ph.D. is from the University of California at Berkeley in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. His B.S. in Computer Systems Engineering, summa cum laude, as well as his M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering were earned at UMass Amherst.

Students enjoyed some Bruegger’s bagels and coffee and learned about Prof. Holcomb’s engineering career and current research projects.

This event was hosted by Prof. Baird Soules, director of M5.
