Zhiqiang Lin Named IEEE Fellow




Dr. Zhiqiang Lin, professor of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University, has been honored with the prestigious grade elevation to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow in the 2024 class. Lin is recognized for contributions to automated vulnerability discovery, code hardening, and monitoring in mobile and systems security.

IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields. It is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a significant honor and an important career achievement.

"Becoming an IEEE Fellow represents not just a personal milestone but also acknowledges the collective efforts and dedication of my students, colleagues, and myself in advancing the field of cybersecurity,” Lin said. “I am deeply grateful for this honor and the opportunity to contribute to our shared body of knowledge."

Lin is the faculty director of the Institute for Cybersecurity and Digital Trust (ICDT), and faculty member in the Center for Automotive Research (CAR), Translational Data Analytics Institute (TDAI), and NSF AI Institute for Future Edge Networks and Distributed Intelligence (AI-Edge). He is the founding faculty advisor of Women in Cyber Security (WiCys) chapter at OSU, and one of the faculty advisors of OSU Cybersecurity Club (OSUCyber).

His research focuses on cybersecurity, particularly on software security (e.g., vulnerability analysis) and trusted computing (e.g., trusted execution environment such as SGX/SEV), and most recently on mobile, IoT, cloud, and blockchain security.

He has published over 140 papers, many of which appeared in the top venues in cybersecurity. He is an ACM Distinguished Member, a recipient of Harrison Faculty Award for Excellence in Engineering Education, NSF CAREER award, AFOSR Young Investigator award, and Outstanding Faculty Teaching Award.

Dr. Zaher M. Kassas, professor of Electrical And Computer Engineering, was also named IEEE Fellow and recognized for contributions to navigation with signals of opportunity.
