Colonel One of Two Chosen for Cybersecurity Research Program
A junior computer science major and EKU Guru in the Student Success Center at Eastern Kentucky University was one of only two students chosen nationally for the prestigious Summer Cybersecurity Research program at Wright State University.
Alex Dixon will spend 10 weeks this summer at the university in Dayton, Ohio, researching cybersecurity topics such as malware detection and software vulnerability assessment, among mentors at the top of the field. At the end of the experience, he will submit an academic paper detailing his research.
“Through the years, Alex Dixon has made me confident that he is an exceptionally outstanding student programmer and researcher,” said Kim. “He always impressed me with his talent, and passion for finding solutions to any challenges that came from classes or research.”
