Connect and collaborate with experts as the Cyber Fusion Innovation Center (CFIC) facilitates virtual events in this series. Webinars take place quarterly and provide presentations to a wide range of audience members on various topics, including technology, cybersecurity, future-proofing efforts, and more. Throughout the hour-long virtual event, the audience can learn together, and they will have an opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A segment.

Dr. Lubjana Beshaj is a Cyber Fellow of Mathematics at the Army Cyber Institute and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at West Point. She is a member of the American Mathematical Society and Women in Mathematics. Her research interests include cryptography, elliptic and hyperelliptic curve cryptography, post-quantum cryptography more specifically isogeny based cryptography, Jacobian varieties, and arithmetic of algebraic curves.

She has co-edited two books:

We enjoyed hosting Dr. Herb Lin! Please see the video of emerging technology presentation below if you missed it!

Dr. Herb Lin is senior research scholar for cyber policy and security at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and Hank J. Holland Fellow in Cyber Policy and Security at the Hoover Institution, both at Stanford University.  His research interests relate broadly to policy-related dimensions of cybersecurity and cyberspace, and he is particularly interested in the use of offensive operations in cyberspace as instruments of national policy and in the security dimensions of information warfare and influence operations on national security.  In addition to his positions at Stanford University, he is Chief Scientist, Emeritus for the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academies, where he served from 1990 through 2014 as study director of major projects on public policy and information technology, and Adjunct Senior Research Scholar and Senior Fellow in Cybersecurity (not in residence) at the Saltzman Institute for War and Peace Studies in the School for International and Public Affairs at Columbia University; and a member of the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. In 2016, he served on President Obama’s Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity.  Prior to his NRC service, he was a professional staff member and staff scientist for the House Armed Services Committee (1986-1990), where his portfolio included defense policy and arms control issues. He received his doctorate in physics from MIT.

Avocationally, he is a longtime folk and swing dancer and a lousy magician. Apart from his work on cyberspace and cybersecurity, he is published in cognitive science, science education, biophysics, and arms control and defense policy. He also consults on K-12 math and science education.

We enjoyed hearing Dr. Ravi Starzl's talk on the Potential of AI in the Military Context!
