Soner Onder Awarded $1.2M

Soner Onder

Soner Onder, professor of computer science, was awarded a $1.2M collaborative medium grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) titled, “Collaborative Research: SHF: Medium: Vectorized Instruction Space (VIS).” A joint project with Florida State University, each university receives an equal share of $600,000. Michigan Tech is the lead institution.

The project targets a long-unsolved problem in the handling of computer programs: the efficient processing of control-flow instructions. It aims to significantly increase the performance of application programs ranging from those running on mobile devices to those utilized by ever-growing data centers.

Onder has four active NSF grant awards; the combined MTU share is over $1.6 million.
