Kastner Research Group alum Dustin Richmond started as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC Santa Cruz this Fall. Dustin got his Ph.D. in 2018 and spent a few years as a post-doc at the University of Washington.
For those of you that are keeping count, that means Dustin has transformed from a Husky (undergraduate) to a Triton (Ph.D.), back to a Husky (post-doc), and now a Banana Slug?! Clearly, he likes the West Coast.
While he has been gone for awhile, he is certainly not forgotten. We have continued to work with Dustin (and now his new research group) on projects related to FPGA security.
Dustin thinking about how one day he will be a banana slug.
Dustin in the much easier, carefree days of graduate school.
