NSF Awards Research Grant to UCO Professor

Aug. 29 — The National Science Foundation awarded a $304,745 research grant to University of Central Oklahoma professor of engineering and physics Evan Lemley, Ph.D., and the university’s Center for Research and Education in Interdisciplinary Computation (CREIC). The grant will fund a cluster supercomputer to be named “Buddy,” a nod to the university’s mascot, Buddy Broncho.

A cluster supercomputer allows multiple users to work on problems much larger than any one computer or user could handle alone. “Buddy” will support research and education for students, faculty and staff at the university, as well as researchers across the state.

“This grant is pivotal in transforming the research computing infrastructure at UCO and meeting the growing needs for high performance computing resources for student-centered research and education at UCO and other institutions in Oklahoma,” said Lemley, who is the director of CREIC and will serve as the lead researcher on the project.

Lemley, an active member of the One Oklahoma Cyberinfrastructure Initiative (OneOCII), will offer more information about the supercomputer at the Oklahoma Supercomputing Symposium set for Sept. 24 at the University of Oklahoma.

“OneOCII is the glue that knits the Oklahoma cyberinfrastructure community together. OneOCII has been instrumental in supporting the Oklahoma Supercomputing Symposium and in supporting collaborative grants such as the National Science Foundation’s award to UCO,” Lemley said.
