CISPA – Helmholtz Center for Information Security
Mridula Singh is (tenure-track) Faculty at CISPA – Helmholtz Center for Information Security in Saarbrucken, Germany. She is interested in Wireless and System Security, focusing strongly on autonomous cyber-physical systems. Her interest in designing physical layer Message Time of Arrival Codes establishes the foundation of secure proximity-based access control and positioning systems. This work has been instrumental in enabling secure passive keyless entry and start systems of various car models. She is currently exploring the possibility of designing secure LiDAR sensors, LEO positioning, and scalable positioning systems. She co-founded Trishulam while pursuing her master’s degree. She worked as a research engineer at Xerox Research Center India, where she was involved in smart transportation and healthcare projects. She received her master’s degree in computer science from IIIT-Delhi, India, and her Ph.D in Computer Science from ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
