Luis A. Garcia

I am a third year ECE candidate pursing a degree in Computer Engineering with a Cyber Security track at Rutgers University.  I am fortunate to be a part of the 4N6 Cyber Security and Forensics Research Group working  under the tutelage of Dr. Saman Zonouz.

My research interests are in the security and verification of cyber-physical and embedded systems that are widely used in critical infrastructures such as medical devices and industrial control systems. I also enjoy spending most of time outdoors, whether I am surfing, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, or hiking.

I am currently working as a visiting scholar at the Logical Systems Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. I am working under the tutelage of Dr. André Platzer. We are working on the integration of model compliance verification and monitoring into the development environments of programmable logic controllers .

I previously interned at working on Siemens Corporate Research the security of programmable logic controllers. I worked under the leadership of Dr. Dong Wei and Leandro Pfleger de Aguiar.

Upon completion of my degree, I will purse a career in academia with the hopes of continuing my research as well as teaching as a professor.
