The Center for Financial Services Blockchain Lab promotes interdisciplinary research on the potential uses of blockchain technology in financial services. The lab is designed to engage faculty and students in producing research, conferences, and white papers on the applications of blockchain in areas of finance such as currency, clearing and settlement, capital formation, and efficient contracts. The lab's work addresses the implementation and regulatory challenges in adopting blockchain technology and the challenges and opportunities presented by central-bank digital currencies.
The lab is headed by Hank Korth (pictured), professor of Computer Science and Engineering. Prof. Korth teaches courses on blockchain to both engineering/computer science students as well as to business students. The interdisciplinary mission of the lab is enhanced by Prof. Korth's membership in the Scalable Software Systems Research Group, where he works on issues in transaction processing, distributed consensus, data consistency, and performance as they relate to blockchain systems.
