Associate Professor of computer and computationalscience at The University of Texas at El Paso, Shirley Moore has been awarded $599,478 by Iowa State University, for a project entitled, A Co-design Approach for Advances in Software and Hardware (CoDAASH), funded by the United States Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR).
According to Moore, graduate students involved will not only be exposed to leading-edge research but will also be part of making significant advances in hardware-software co-design.
CoDAASH's goal focuses in the understanding on the relationship between algorithms and hardware platform and how to jointly optimize the software and hardware, in order to achieve efficient implementations for materials science applications.
"This project is an excellent opportunity to combine software and hardware research for the benefit of grand challenge applications in materials science, chemistry and physics," Moore said.
Other institutions that will also participate in the CoDAASH project will be The University of Tennessee and the University of California at San Diego.
The project involved the contribution of co-principal investigators, Pat Teller, professor of computer science and Ramon Ravelo, Associate Professor of Physics who worked alongside lead principal investigator, Moore.
Furthermore, AFOSR will help fund a team of three graduate students who will have the opportunity to assist and carry out original research, ultimately leading to thesis topics. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
