“Decreased reuse of electronics has economic, social, and environmental impacts, according to Eric Williams, a GIS professor who will lead an interdisciplinary NSF study designed to better understand and manage data privacy on home devices.

Eric Williams, a professor in Rochester Institute of Technology’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS), will lead a $496,027 National Science Foundation project for a study integrating research and outreach activities designed to better understand and manage data privacy on home devices.

The three-year study, titled “Managing Privacy and Environment for Used and End-of-Life Electronic Devices,” will look at how the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transition toward increased telework and mobile working and resulting implications on data security and e-waste.”
