Technology Applications Center for Healthful Lifestyles (TACHL) Hosting a Seminar by Dr. David Kotz


February 25
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Harborview Office Tower, Room 1001C
Brenda Brunner-Jackson, MPH 792-9500

On Monday Feb. 25, 2-3pm,
Harborview Office Tower, Room 1001C,
the Technology Applications Center for Healthful Lifestyles (TACHL) will be hosting a seminar by Dr. David Kotz titled:

"Trustworthy Mobile Health (mHealth) Systems"

Dr. Kotz is the Champion International Professor and Associate Dean for the Sciences at Dartmouth College.

Abstract: Mobile computing and sensing technologies present exciting opportunities for healthcare. Prescription wireless sensors worn by patients can automatically deliver medical data to care providers, dramatically improving their ability to diagnose, monitor, and manage a range of medical conditions. Using the mobile phones that patients already carry to provide connectivity between sensors and providers is essential to keeping costs low and deployments simple. Unfortunately, cyber attacks on privacy-sensitive and safety-critical applications can have significant consequences for patients.

He will discuss his team's ongoing development of a next-generation mHealth architecture solution (Amulet),that provides strong security and privacy guarantees while remaining easy to use.

David Kotz is the Champion International Professor, in the Department of Computer Science, and Associate Dean of the Faculty for the Sciences, at Dartmouth College. During the 2008-09 academic year he was a Fulbright Research Scholar at the Indian Institute of Science, in Bangalore India. At Dartmouth, he was the Executive Director of the Institute for Security Technology Studies from 2004-07. His research interests include security and privacy, pervasive computing for healthcare, and wireless networks. He has published over 100 refereed journal and conference papers. He is an IEEE Fellow, a Senior Member of the ACM, a member of the USENIX Association, and an elected member of Phi Beta Kappa. After receiving his A.B. in Computer Science and Physics from Dartmouth in 1986, he completed his Ph.D in Computer Science from Duke University in 1991 and returned to Dartmouth to join the faculty.
