Charles A. Kamhoua received his B.S. in Electronic from the University of Douala (ENSET), Cameroon in 1999, and the M.S. in Telecommunication and Networking and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Florida International University in 2008 and 2011 respectively. In 2011, he joined the Cyber Assurance Branch of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory(AFRL), Rome, New York, as a National Academies Postdoctoral Fellow and became a Research Electronics Engineer in 2012. Prior to joining AFRL, he was an educator for more than 10 years. His current research interests cover the application of game theory and mechanism design to cyber security and survivability, with over 50 technical publications in prestigious journals and International conferences including a Best Paper Award at the 2013 IEEE FOSINT-SI. Dr.Kamhoua has been recognized for his scholarship and leadership with numerous prestigious awards including 15 Air Force Notable Achievement Awards, the 2015 AFOSR Windows on the World Visiting Research Fellowship at Oxford University, UK, an AFOSR basic research award of $645K, the 2015 Black Engineer of the Year Award (BEYA), the 2015 NSBE Golden Torch Award – Pioneer of the Year, a selection to the 2015 Heidelberg Laureate Forum, a 2011 NSF PIRE award at Fluminense Federal University, Brazil, and the 2008 FAEDS teacher award. He is an advisor for the National Research Council, a Senior Member of IEEE, a member of ACM, the FIU alumni association, and NSBE.
Two Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR)-funded in-house efforts have shaped the way that AFRL/RI has bridged fault tolerance and game theory: “Fault Tolerance for Fight-Through (FTFT)” and “STORM: Survivability Through Optimizing Resilient Mechanisms”. FTFT was the forerunner of… Read More
