The Trustworthy Data Engineering Lab (TRUST Lab) at Iowa State University is directed by Dr. Eric Rozier, and conducts research in the design and validation of next generation infrastructures for trustworthy computing systems. These systems have high requirements for performance, reliability, fault-tolerance, storage efficiency and security. Designing for one of these goals is not enough, however, as solutions for one design goal may degrade another. To understand the complexity of these systems, members of the TRUST Lab develop detailed domain knowledge.
The TRUST Lab focuses on solving real-world applications in the fields of big data, cloud computing, biomedical computation, and other related areas. A unique attribute of our laboratory is our emphasis on these real-world problems and applications. We believe our research has the most impact for trusted infrastructure development when we combine strong fundamentals from our discipline with direct ties to industrial partners. We have been collaborating on trusted solutions with numerous companies and federal agencies, such as IBM, VMware, NASA, the Illinois State Geological Survey, the Illinois Natural History Survey, and many others.
Our research impacts the real world through the development of engineering modeling and design tools, the development of next-generation infrastructures, and important protocols, and analysis tools for evaluating compliance, reliability, availability, performance and security.
