Endadul Hoque

Assistant Professor


Endadul Hoque is an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University. After his PhD, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Northeastern University. His research interests lie at the intersection of networked systems and security. Broadly, he is interested in tackling practical cybersecurity problems in the networking domain, where the overarching goal is to create automated techniques for achieving higher assurance on networked systems. He primarily apply program analysis and formal verification techniques to design and develop automated analysis techniques for aiding the development of secure networked systems, including real-world implementations of network protocols and IoT systems. During his PhD, he received the Graduate Teaching Fellowship award in 2014 and the Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship award in 2015. His research work has been published in several top security and networking conferences (e.g., S&P, DSN) and journals (e.g., ToN).
