Summer Research for Homeland Security
July 19, 2013
Through an opportunity provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Kenneth J. Faller, assistant professor of computer engineering, and senior computer engineering major Garrett Kinum are conducting research for an automated interviewing and detection system.
It is the first time a College of Engineering and Computer Science faculty member has been selected for participation in the federal agency's Summer Research Team Program for Minority Serving Institutions. Faller and his student are working with the National Center for Border Security and Immigration at the University of Arizona through Aug. 23.
"I'm really honored to be selected," said Faller. "This experience will allow me to expand my research repertoire, as well as enhance Garrett's learning experience to apply theory learned in the classroom to solve real-world problems."
