Professor Manish Parashar Awarded IBM Faculty Award

Professor Manish Parashar of the Department of Electrical and Computer and Engineering and co-director of the National Science Foundation Center ofr Autonomic Computing has been awarded a 2008 IBM Faculty Award for his research on autonomic data extraction, streaming and in-transit data manipulation for petascale computing. As part of this research effort, he is developing an autonomic data-management substrate for the IBM BlueGene (and other HPC platforms) to enable fast, low-overhead and asynchronous access to data from a running application, and support high-throughput, low-latency and robust data transport. This research is driven by a range of applications including Reservoir Modeling, CO2 Sequestration, Structural Biology, Medical Informatics, and Computational Finance.
