The Michigan Technological University Department of Computer Science is proud to announce that Bo Yu, a senior in the CS, as been selected to receive the Michigan Tech SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship) award. Bo has received the maximum award given for this fellowship – $3300.
Bo’s research, under the mentoring of Dr. Ali Ebnenasir, is titled, “Towards Designing a Fault-Tolerant Scheduler for the OkL4 Microkernal.” OkL4 is a small microkernel found within millions of smart phones. The research involves studying the task queue of the OkL4 scheduler, analyzing the impact of transient faults on the task queue, designing recovery from transient faults, and refining recovery back to the level of the OkL4 source code.
Congratulations to Bo and Dr. Ali Ebnenasir!
