: Funded Ph.D Position Available
I am looking to fund Ph.D. students working on the verification of task parallel programs (deadlock and data-race). Please review the details and consider contacting me.
: NSF Award to Research a Static and Dynamic Verification Framework for Parallel Programming
The lab just received a funded NSF award to research ways to test and verify Habanero Java programs. As a result, I have 4 years stipends available for interested undergraduate, M.S., and Ph.D. students to begin working on the project. Please contact me directly if you would like to become involved in the work. I have started gathering resources here.
