Welcome to the Cyber Identity and Behavior Research Lab


The Cyber Identity and Behavior Research (CIBeR) Lab conducts research related to Identity and Access Management, particularly, mobile biometrics and inclusive user authentication systems, and Smart Sensing, particularly for human behavior analysis and interdisplinary applications of behavior tracking. We also conduct research in natural language processing (visit the NLP Group at USF). CIBeR is directed by Dr. Tempestt Neal, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida.

We are looking for passionate new Master thesis students to join the team. (more info) !
