SCI Faculty Receive Grant from the National Science Foundation and Intel Corporation to Enhance Computer Performance

SCI faculty members Youtao Zhang and Xulong Tang were recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Intel Corporation to improve computer memory performance through the development of hardware and software.  The project, titled “FoMR: A Software and Hardware Co-Design for Addressing the Performance Bottlenecks in Secure Non-Volatile Memory,” received the grant from the NSF’s Division of Computing and Communication Foundations, which supports research and education on the mathematical, scientific, and technological foundations of computing, information, and communications.  Zhang and Tang will be working on this project with Jun Yang, of the Swanson School of Engineering.

Zhang and Tang both teach in the Department of Computer Science at SCI.  Zhang’s research interests include compilers, computer architecture, and system security.  Tang’s research interests include application, compiling, runtime, and architecture of GPUs, compiler-assisted massive parallel computing, and heterogeneous computing architectures and systems.

Please join us in congratulating them on this exciting endeavor!
