Speaker Details : Dr. Arun Lakhotia is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Founder CEO of Cythereal, LLC. Over the last decade he has studied the protection mechanisms used by malware and has developed methods to peer through these protections. This research, funded in part by US DoD, has led to the development of VirusBattle, an automated malware analysis web service that draws connections between malware using the semantics of their underlying code. Dr. Lakhotia had a brief foray into robotics, leading Team CajunBot in the development of CajunBot, an unmanned Jeep, that participated in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge. Dr.Lakhotia earned his PhD in Computer Science from Case Western Reserve University in 1990. His research has been supported by DARPA, AFOSR, AFRL, and ARO. He is the recipient of the 2004 Louisiana Governor's Technology Leader of the Year Award.
