NSF Grant to NAU Will Support R&D + Training in Parallel Computing

An assistant professor at Northern Arizona University’s School of Informatics, Computing and Cyber Systems, Mike Gowanlock, has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to support his research in the emerging field of parallel computing architectures needed to process large volumes of data generated by major astronomical surveys, including the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). The grant will also support development of a new undergraduate course that teaches parallel computing, ensuring that graduates of NAU’s computer science undergraduate program have the skills needed to exploit future generation computer systems.
