NSF Designates Clarkson Lead Site for

Identification Technology Research

Hand Access ImageThe National Science Foundation has designated Clarkson as the lead site for its Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR), one of NSF’s Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers.
CITeR advances identification technology by focusing on biometric systems and credibility assessment. The Center performs research on emerging technologies, interdisciplinary training of scientists and engineers, and technology transfer to the private and government sectors through its affiliates.
Clarkson’s site focuses on biometric vulnerabilities and intelligence. West Virginia University is the Center’s founding site, focusing on biometrics and related identification technology and systems. The University of Arizona is the Center’s second site, focusing on credibility assessment systems.
CITeR is led by Electrical & Computer Engineering Professor Stephanie A. Schuckers, one of America’s top experts in biometric computer security. She has been a leading contributor to CITeR’s research since 2001.

High-Powered Researcher or Incoming Freshman?

Last summer incoming Honors student Lisa D’Auria ’15 teamed up with Prof. Shane Rogers of the Department of Environmental Engineering to work on a research project aimed at identifying potential environmental and health hazards of dairy manure application on upstate New York farm communities.
The research group attended an agricultural conference in San Antonio and the data that D’Auria gathered last summer will be included in a forthcoming publication. She has already made a commitment to participate in Prof. Rogers’ research group for the next four years.
The “Pre-frosh” summer research is one of the highlights of the Honors Program providing students with a transformative experience and cutting-edge research skills acquired in the laboratory and field.
