Scott Wolter, associate professor of engineering, received a $10,447 subaward from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in conjunction with Northeastern University and Duke University, for a project entitled, “Characterizing, modeling, and mitigating texturing in X-ray diffraction imaging.”

Wolter will contribute to research focusing on anomaly detection as it pertains to X-ray diffraction imaging for airport and mass transit security applications. His work will focus on studies involving the understanding of materials texturing on reliability of threat detection.
