I have been studying on VLSI security, especially on a topic of Hardware Trojan Detection. Hardware Trojan is one of the emerging threats arisen from complicated design and manufacturing flows of semiconductor products including several outsourcing phases.  I have proposed several new ideas and methods to give effective and efficient solutions to detect Hardware Trojans that maliciously embedded in VLSIs. I have developed methods in power based side-channel analysis to achieve two major challenges in hardware security: (1) Detection sensitivity for tiny Trojans in the context of process variations and (2) Golden reference or Golden IC free detection.
