Elvan Ceyhan, an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, is the recipient of an award sponsored by the Department of the Navy, Office of Naval Research, or ONR, under award number N00014-22-1-2572 for the project "Adversarial Risk Analysis for Optimal Obstacle Evasion." The project, a collaboration with David Banks of Duke University, received an award of $358,000, with Auburn receiving $214,000 and Duke receiving $144,000.

The overall goal of the research project is to create procedures that avoid adversarial threats for continuous paths such as ships navigating the ocean. It will result in algorithms and methodology in Adversarial Risk Analysis, or ARA.
