Three Computer Science Students Win Prestigious Award

Three Jacksonville State University computer science students, Dorothy Brown, Rahjima Francia, and Chrissy Scott, were recently awarded a Collaborative Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU) research grant for their work entitled "Visualization and Management of Digital Forensic Data."

Each student will receive a $3000 stipend and an additional $500 for supplies. These three women will join the ranks of previous research awardees from larger institutions such as UC Berkeley, Harvard University, Duke University, Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia, Georgia Tech, and Tufts University.

According to the CREU project director, the JSU proposal was judged to be one of the best projects submitted this year. A paper describing the project was accepted for presentation and publication in the 2006 Information Security (InfoSec2006) Conference.

Drs. Guillermo Francia, III and Monica Trifas will serve as faculty advisors for the research project. The award is jointly funded by the Computing Research Association (CRA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
