Project: Preparing Tomorrow’s Minority Task Force in Coastal Resilience through Interdisciplinary Education, Research and Curriculum Development
Other Education Participants/Partners:UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte and Jackson State University
Project Description: We focus on the integrative, interdisciplinary nature of real-world problems and strive to bridge traditional academic programs to develop solutions to coastal resilience and its related problems facing our nation. The proposed program will build an undergraduate education framework to prepare tomorrow’s minority task force in coastal resilience (approximately 80% of students are minorities), which presents tailored courses in coastal resilience, applied research experience, knowledge transfer activities, scientific seminars and summer camps.
Research Interests: Wireless and mobile communication; system performance evaluation; information security and privacy; and broadening participation and increasing retention of women and minority students in computing disciplines
