Post-quantum secure encryption and cybersecurity education

Post-quantum secure encryptio

Encryption systems that are capable of surviving quantum computer attacks are urgently required, but the cybersecurity talent gap militates against securing cyberinfrastructure. Dr Aydin Aysu, Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University, is advancing the research and teaching of post-quantum secure encryption. He has developed a quantum-secure encryption system together with a new graduate program on hardware security and is […]

Communicating the language of plants through inositol phosphates

Dr Perera and her colleagues’ aim with this project is to understand how inositol phosphates are used to sense the energy and nutrient status of plant cells, and how they signal this status so that the plant can use this information.

Organisms require a variety of signalling pathways to communicate with and respond to their environment. Components such as signalling molecules function as the communicators of cellular language. Dr Imara Perera and her colleagues are investigating one group of signalling molecules, inositol phosphates and their derivatives, to understand its role in plant communication. All organisms interact with and respond to their […]

Understanding how ‘grain boundaries’ cause the structural integrity of materials fail

header image for article about improving the performance of structural and functional materials.

After receiving a Young Investigator Program award from the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Dr Srikanth Patala and his research team at North Carolina State University have studied the impact of ‘grain boundaries’ on the structural integrity of many materials used in critical applications. This includes materials commonly found in jet engine turbine blades, nuclear power stations and internal […]
