Faculty Receives NSF Career Award

Prof. ShenProf. Xipeng Shen was awarded an NSF CAREER (The Faculty Early Career Development) grant. According to NSF, the NSF CAREER is a program "that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars". The $420K grant will support a 5-year project titled Input-Centric Program Behavior Analysis and Adaptation. Program behavior analysis lies at the core of software-hardware matching. The project aims to include program inputs--an important but so far virtually ignored dimension--into the focus of program behavior analysis, cultivating a new paradigm, namely input-centric program behavior analysis and adaptation.
