Honors, Awards and Grants

  • 2014
    Mitacs Elevate Postdoctoral Fellowship
    The fellowship, in partnership with Intel, was for Dr. H. Kamal to continue her work with FG-MPI. We released a new version of FG-MPI 3.0 at Supercomputing in November of 2015. This release was the target of Dr. Kamal's PostDoctoral work and was a concerted two year development effort. Dut to this support we were able to integrate fine-grain MPI into the 2015 major new version of the MPI standard, FG-MPI can be used by developers and users of the standard. ( FG-MPI)

    NSERC: I2I Grant
    Real-time, market-wide analysis of financial instrument: MarketMiner is an online scalable analytics engine for data-mining and analysis of financial data. It is a component-based system that executes in parallel to compute intra-day correlations in close to real-time, and searches through these correlations for short-term patterns and divergences. As part of the I2I grant we experimentally investigated the validity of the analytics underlying MarketMiner, used the experimental results to refine the computational processes, and worked closely with potential clients to identify the analytics and tools best suited for commercialization.

  • 2006
    Cisco University Research Awards
    Compute and Data Intensive Processing using MPI over SCTP: Supported our research in using SCTP and MPI for cluster computing. This support allowed us to fully integrate our SCTP-based middleware into MPICH as part of its official release (not in the current version). (with B. Penoff and H. Kamal)
