ECE Faculty, Dr. Liudong Xing, Awarded Multi-Year NSF Grant

Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Dr. Liudong Xing, was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) research grant for 250k to study the reliability of complex dynamic systems. The award titled 'Efficient Dynamic Combinatorial Models (EDCM) for Reliability Analysis of Complex Dynamic Systems', was awarded by the Computer Systems program of NSF and is for three years from September 2008 through August 2011.

The research goal of this project is to find efficient solutions for the reliability analysis of large-scale computer-based systems with complex dynamic behavior. The findings from this work are expected to be used in the practice of reliability design of complex systems. The project involves collaboration with researchers from Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA and Applied Materials. Dr. Xing is the sole principle investigator for the project.

Dr. Xing received her Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Virginia. She joined the department of electrical and computer engineering as an assistant professor in 2002. She was promoted to associate professor in 2008.  Dr. Xing research interests are in the field of reliability engineering and fault-tolerant computing. She has published extensively in the field and is one of the most prolific scholars in the college of engineering. In 2007, she was recognized by Region 1 of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), for her outstanding technical innovations in the field of Reliability Engineering. The IEEE is the leading professional organization for electrical engineers and computer engineers.
