Jianhui Yue (SAS) has been awarded a 3-year NSF grant with a total budget of $176,876. One PhD student will be supported for two years. The project is titled “Improving Reliability of In-Memory Storage”. The project addresses two challenges of in-memory storage: 1) Memory cells have limited write endurance (i.e., the total number of program/erase cycles per cell), and 2) Nonvolatile memory has to remain in a consistent state in the event of a system crash or power loss. This project will take a holistic approach, spanning from low-level architecture design to high-level OS management, to optimize the reliability, performance, and manageability of in-memory storage.
Chee-Wooi Ten (CPS) is the lead Principal Investigator on a research grant from NSF for a project entitled, “An Actuarial Framework of Cyber Risk Management for Power Grids,” in collaboration with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a total amount of $700,975. Michigan Tech Tech is composed of Chee-Wooi Ten and Co-Pi Yeonwoo Rho. This project aims to establish an actuarial framework for strategizing technological improvements of countermeasures against emerging cyberattacks on wide-area power networks.
