Timothy HavensAssociate Professor Timothy Havens received a DoD Army Research Office research award with a budget of $99,779 during the first year.

This is also a 3-year project with a total budget of $1,066,799. The project is titled “Multisensor Analysis and Algorithm Development for Detection and Classification of Buried and Obscured Targets.”

Tim and his students will develop new algorithms to detect and classify buried objects, one of the important research areas for ARO.


Professor Zhenlin Wang received external funding

Zhenlin WangProfessor Zhenlin Wang received an NSF research award with a total budget of $375,000.

This is a 3-year project with a title of “CSR:Small: Effective Sampling-Based Miss Ratio Curves: Theory and Practice”. In this project, Zhenlin and his students will use miss ratio curves (MRCs), which relate cache miss ratio to cache size, to model working set and cache locality.

The project develops a new cache locality theory to construct MRCs effectively and then applies it to several caching or memory management systems.
