Kimberly Ruth Wins the Mary Gates Research Scholarship
Congratulations to UW Security Lab undergraduate Kimberly Ruth for winning the coveted Mary Gates Research Scholarship! The Mary Gates Scholarship is a highly competitive scholarship intended to facilitate the research experience of University of Washington undergraduate students. Kimberly is actively conducting research at the intersection of augmented reality and computer security, a research area led by security lab faculty member Franziska Roesner. In fact, Kimberly is a co-author of an upcoming paper on that topic, to appear at this year’s IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in May 2017. Kimberly conducted that research during her freshman and sophmore years at UW. Her paper, co-authored with her PhD student mentor Kiron Lebeck and her faculty advisors Franziska Roesner and Yoshi Kohno, will appear on the UW Augmented Reality and Security page soon. Congratulations Kimberly!!
