Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Technological shifts in the fields of microfluidics and security are now converging. New techniques in microfluidics increasingly rely on cyberphysical integration and concepts from computer-aided design automation to provide ease-of-use, reliability, and higher throughput. Meanwhile, security concerns are extending beyond traditional information technologies as low-cost computing and sensing proliferates into an ever-increasing number of devices. This keynote paper highlights recent findings and trends in these field to motivate research in the nascent field of cyberphysical microfluidic biochip security and trust.
