RAship opportunity for fall 2018

Dr. Aggarwal is seeking students for a 10 hour (possibly 20 hour) RA position, currently for the Fall semester 2018 only. The project relates to targeted data extraction from mobile phones. Good programming skills are essential but he is also looking for students with interest in forensics / security. Preferred programming skills would be (1) iOS development (Swift programming); (2) Java Programming and (3) Python programming. The project is using machine learning techniques for identification / categorization so experience with ML environments, tools, and techniques would also give priority. A selected student should also be able to understand existing code implementations and make modifications as needed.

If you believe you can contribute to this project then first email Dr. Aggarwal a resume and he will contact you as follow up. Include information about your skills, GPA, etc. Also indicate in your email if you currently (in fall) have TA funding from the department as some existing TA funding would be preferred.
