Amy Sliva, assistant professor of computer and information science and political science
Sliva is a pioneer in the emerging field of security informatics, taking a Big Data approach to mining the labyrinth of terrorism’s contextual markers to predict when and where violence might erupt.
Dr. Orimoto, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, was selected for funding by the Office of High Energy Physics. Understanding the origins of electroweak symmetry breaking and probing the possibilities of new physics at the Energy Frontier is one of the primary goals of high energy physics. The recent Higgs boson discovery by the large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland signal a new era in particle physics and brings us closer to achieving these goals.
