Lucia receives NSF grant to improve the reliability of parallel computer systems

Brandon Lucia recently received an NSF award to develop a new approach to making parallel software operate reliably. The project proposes a new system design that will prevent incorrectly written programs from leading to potentially dangerous and incorrect behavior. The work will also identify how to improve the availability of parallel computer systems that might use the support in the future. With the new, proposed system support and computer architectures, parallel computer systems will be safer, easier to program, more reliable, and simpler to verify. Lucia will work alongside co-PI Dr. Michael Bond from the Ohio State University and Carnegie Mellon will receive $481.096, of the $825,000 grant. Read more.
