    • Kadiyala, P., Tao, L. & Chen, L. (2011, January). A Web Application for Financial Trading Simulation. Thinkfinity Cornerstone 3: Interdisciplinary Informatics - Grant Application , Pace University , $10,000.00 . Funded,This project has three objectives. First, we will develop Web Application for Financial Trading Simulation (WAFTS) for trading simulation exercises. Second, we will train students in computer security classes to secure a web based financial application and WAFTS will serve as a platform for computer security testing exercises. Third, we will use WAFTS in financial trading classes. We will investigate how students behave during the financial trading simulation exercises in the events when computer security risk occurs.
