Undergraduate and graduate students in Purdue Polytechnic presented posters summarizing their 2021-2022 research projects. Student research projects affiliated with the Polytechnic’s Holistic Safety and Security research impact area are summarized here.
Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar, associate professor of computer and information technology, has been selected as a Fulbright Scholar for her work in cybersecurity — specifically, for her upcoming research that will analyze the criminological differences and online grooming strategies of child sexual exploitation offenders in Spain, train Spanish law enforcement officers, and conduct community safety seminars.
Umit Karabiyik, assistant professor of computer and information technology, is researching ways for people to limit the data they share with law enforcement. His research could help preserve security and privacy while reducing the vast quantity of data that law enforcement agencies have to manage.
Since 2018, scientists in Purdue Polytechnic’s strategic research impact areas have been working to solve challenges in cybersecurity and critical infrastructure that affect global economics, security and health. Faculty members in the Holistic Safety and Security team are building on research that has received national attention and funding.
Student pilots don't have the typical on-duty/off-duty workday that is typical in the airline industry, so Purdue Polytechnic’s Julius Keller and a team of faculty and graduate students are researching ways to mitigate fatigue amongst collegiate aviators.
Purdue Polytechnic’s Marcus Rogers, Umit Karabiyik and Fahad Salamh earned a patent for their method of automating the collection of cloud-based digital forensic evidence.
Purdue Polytechnic’s Marcus Rogers and Umit Karabiyik are developing technology that could help parolees avoid recommitting crimes and better reintegrate into general society.
Fahad Salamh, Marcus Rogers and Umit Karabiyik have developed a cloud forensic model using machine learning to collect digital evidence related to illegal activities on cloud storage applications like Dropbox and Google Drive.
FileTSAR, an all-in-one cybersecurity toolkit developed by Purdue Polytechnic researchers and their colleagues, is helping detectives dust for digital fingerprints.
A new automatic T-valve system for firefighting robots could make firefighters’ jobs less dangerous and save public lives, according to Eric Dietz.
