Sara Rampazzi, Ph.D
Sara Rampazzi is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) at the University of Florida. Her research areas focus on cyber-physical systems security, embedded systems design, modeling, and simulation with applications in Healthcare, Autonomous Systems, and the Internet of Things. Dr. Rampazzi investigates security and privacy risks and designs defense strategies for trustworthy and resilient cyber-physical systems despite emerging attacks. Several media outlets covered her work on injecting inaudible and invisible commands into smart home devices Light Commands. Forbes has recognized her work on Lidar spoofing attacks on autonomous vehicles as the first paper on practical attacks against LiDAR systems. Dr. Rampazzi has received the Medtronic Outstanding Research Contributor Recognition for medical device security, and her work has been sponsored by NSF, Meta, and Toyota Info Tech Lab.
