Clifton and Seibert Receive CERIAS Awards
On April 2, 2012, annual awards were announced at the CERIAS 2012 XIII Annual Information Security Symposium.
Chris Clifton, Associate Professor of Computer Science, was named a Fellow of CERIAS. According to the Center, "This designation is awarded to faculty who have demonstrated sustained, significant involvement in Center activities in education, research and service over the prior 3 years. The award includes a certificate and special pin." Five faculty from other academic departments were also named Fellows of CERIAS this year: Daniel DeLaurentis (AAE), Arif Ghafoor (ECE), Lorraine Kisselburgh (COM), Robert Proctor (PSY), and Julia Taylor (CIT).
Jeffrey Seibert, a Computer Science PhD candidate, was one of two students recognized with a Diamond Award. "The intent of the award," according to the Center, "is to recognize students who have thrived under the pressure of their academic program to emerge as 'gems' in the field." Seibert received his undergraduate degree from Purdue. He is expected to graduate with his PhD this May, working under the supervision of Associate Professor Cristina Nita-Rotaru. His dissertation research addresses the use of locality in building distributed systems.
Congratulations to Professor Clifton and Jeffrey Seibert!
