Students of ALERT

ALERT provides a pipeline of educational support for students from middle school through the university level and beyond. Through residential programs, summer research experiences, courses, and workshops, we are introducing hundreds of students and career professionals to DHS-related material.

Students of ALERT is a new video series highlighting the work and experiences of these exemplary students. Our first in the series features Katherine Graham:

Katherine Graham, a Northeastern University undergraduate student, shares her experiences of working with ALERT and her interest in security-related projects. From participating with the ALERT and Gordon-CenSSIS scholars program to the ALERT SEWDP program, she has been involved with ALERT since her first year at Northeastern. Ms. Graham, who works with Professor Jose Martinez-Lorenzo of Northeastern, walks us through the SICA lab (Multi-wave Sensing, Imaging, Control, and Actuation Laboratory) and describes her work as a mechanical engineer for the On-the-move Threat Detection System project.
