INSPIRE

The INformation Security and Privacy Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE) program is an IGERT scholarship to provide the best Ph.D. students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary research in cybersecurity, information assurance and privacy.

As a partnership between NYU-Poly, the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, and faculty from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, INSPIRE is built around the interdisciplinary research projects initiated by our world-class faculty.

Why INSPIRE

INSPIRE makes it possible for our Ph.D.s to learn about building secure and private information systems while working beyond the boundaries of a traditional research project. With a diverse cohort, seminars, speakers, and many available internships, our graduates will be able to integrate technical, legal, financial and psychological aspects into practical and dependable solutions.

The National Science Foundation-funded program is directed by Prof. Nasir Memon, in association with Profs. Anindya Ghose, Ramesh Karri, Helen Nissenbaum, and Rae Zimmerman.
