Colorado State compsci prof nets $400K NSF grant for speeding data streams

Professor's work could boost healthcare, homeland security applications

The National Science Foundation has awarded a Colorado State University computer science professor a $400K grant to develop new ways to speed computer systems used for applications such as healthcare and homeland security.

Assistant Professor Shrideep Pallickara of CSU's Department of Computer Science will use the Early CAREER grant to fund his research into faster and less expensive processing and analysis of data streams from devices such as electronic health monitoring gear used in medical and assisted living facilities as well as from chemical and other sensors used by the government to sniff out possible terrorist acts.

Pallickara has created open-source software that could play a role in making such computer processing systems less expensive to deploy.

Bob Brown tracks network research in his Alpha Doggs blog and Facebook page, as well on Twitter and Google +.
