NORTHFIELD, Vt. —Norwich University has named Dr. Huw O.L. Read, Professor of Computer Security and Information Assurance, as a Charles A. Dana Professor in recognition of his outstanding teaching, scholarship and service.
Read joined the Norwich faculty in 2015 and received his doctorate in digital forensics from the University of Glamorgan, South Wales, UK, in 2008. His work has been published in peer-reviewed conferences and journals. In addition, several publications have been jointly authored with undergraduate students, helping to better arm them for future cyber-related challenges.
Read led a team of Norwich students working on cybersecurity at Super Bowl 50 and received NSA/NSF grant funding to run two successive GenCyber summer camps for high school students from across the United States.
Founded in 1974, the Charles A. Dana Foundation supports the development of an outstanding full-time faculty through the recruitment and retention of professors with widely recognized scholarly attributes and a high level of teaching competence. Faculty are nominated by their peers and recommendations for appointment are made by the current body of Dana Professors to the Provost and the President.
“This appointment is a deep testament to Dr. Read’s hard work and commitment to our students and to the institution,” Dr. Karen F. Gaines, Provost and Dean of the Faculty said. “Please join me in congratulating him on this well-deserved honor and continued success.”
