Hanif Rahbari is an assistant professor of Computing Security and a member of the Center for Cybersecurity at RIT. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Arizona (UA) in 2016. His dissertation was a blend of theoretical and experimental (software radio) research on transmission fingerprints obfuscation in wireless communications. He joined RIT in Spring 2018 after a short-term affiliation with UA as a Senior Research Specialist and a brief experience as a postdoctoral associate at Virginia Tech. His broad research area is wireless security and wireless communications, including secure vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications, Internet of Things (IoT), Wi-Fi, 4G/5G and beyond. He has published several papers in top journals and conferences, including IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE TMC, IEEE TWC, ACM WiSec, IEEE CNS, IEEE TIFS, and IEEE Communications Magazine. He also holds the B.Sc. degree in information technology engineering and the M.Sc. degree in computer networks from Sharif University of Technology and AmirKabir University of Technology (Iran), respectively, and is a co-inventor of two granted/pending US patents.

Imagine RIT preview: How phones and laptops can be tracked via their radio waves
A team of computing security students will demonstrate how the unique properties that exist in the radio waves of a wireless device can allow a third-party to single out, fingerprint and track that specific Wi-Fi device during the Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival on Saturday.
