Cited in Article about Innovative Approach to Cybersecurity Education

Dr. Caine was cited in an article on the shortage of cybersecurity workers in the US published in The Chronicle of Higher Education.

“Among the institutions that are shifting to a more comprehensive notion of cybersecurity is Clemson University. Its Humans and Technology Lab conducts research aimed at making automated systems better reflect the ways people actually behave, with protections designed accordingly. Recent projects include studying how patients use electronic health records and exploring the risks to privacy posed by wearable devices.

Nationwide, colleges have a long way to go to incorporate that kind of broad approach into their educational and research agendas, says Kelly Caine, an associate professor of human-centered computing at Clemson, who heads the lab.”

Awarded NSF grant to develop technologies to help underserved older adults age in place

Dr. Kelly Caine and Dr. Kay Connelly have  been awarded $500,000 by the National Science Foundation to better understand how technologies can assist underserved older adults as they age in place.

The project will ultimately provide guidance to community members, service providers, and governmental agencies about how to wield technology to enable those populations to age in place. Researchers will identify and analyze existing technologies, then compare and contrast those with the specific needs of low-SES older adults.
