Research Themes

Muresan’s research focuses on cryptography, security, VLSI design, system-on-chip design, and intelligent embedded systems design. Key areas of focus include:

  1. Security. Mursean studies the integration of highly secure cryptographic components into intelligent embedded systems. Specifically, the design and integration of on-chip countermeasure circuits against side-channel attacks, physically unclonable function modules, and chaotic ciphers.
  2. Intelligent Transportation Systems. Muresan studies the integration of intelligent embedded systems into applications related to green intelligent transportation systems and monitoring safety driving behavior.
