About me

My name is Ruxandra and I'm a PhD student at the University of Bucharest in the Computer Science department. I started my doctoral studies in October 2021 at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science under the supervision of Ioana Leuștean and Paul Irofti . My research fields are security and computer architectures, especially RISC-V. My interest in this area started during my master where I studied Security and Applied Logic . The master thesis "A Study on the Attacks Reproduced on RISC-V" presents some of the most popular attacks and how they impact RISC-V. The proposed PhD topic "Low-level Attacks and Software Mitigations on RISC-V" follows the same direction, but this time the focus is on the speculative RISC-V architectures.
