Deepak K Tosh
Assistant Professor, Computer Science

Dr. Tosh is an assistant professor in Computer Science at the University of Texas at El Paso. His research interests include Blockchain technology, cybersecurity, data provenance mechanisms, security of Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT) environments, distributed system security, cyber-threat information sharing, cyber-insurance, cyber-risk assessment, game theory and mechanism design, and nature-inspired optimization techniques. He has been actively working with researchers from Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), Rome, NY and Army Research Lab (ARL), Adelphi, MD on the cybersecurity and blockchain research. Although the traditional centralized computing paradigm works well at present, the trust, privacy, and security issues are the main bottlenecks, which were overlooked. With a growing connectedness in our communities and increasing standards of cyber-crimes, security challenges are the must things to be addressed. With these motivations, Dr. Tosh has aligned his research focus in designing secure, decentralized, and scalable solutions for both civilian application (e.g. Internet of Things, Cloud and Edge computing platforms) and military/battlefield environments.
