Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Boulat Bash is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, joining the university after working at Raytheon BBN Technologies in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for three and a half years. He earned an undergraduate degree in economics at Dartmouth College, and his MS and PhD degrees in computer science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Bash’s research is focused on covert communications, which involves not only protecting the content of communications from adversaries, but keeping adversaries from detecting that communication is happening at all. Bash has authored or co-authored 26 journals, conference articles and technical reports and has one patent.
