Liu receives NSF CAREER Award

Alex Liu, assistant professor of computer science and engineering, has received an NSF CAREER award for his project "Towards High Performance Policy Evaluation.". The high-level research objective of this project is to increase the effectiveness and adoption of policy-based computing by designing high performance policy evaluation algorithms and engines that can be adapted to support various policy languages.

The primary focus of this project is the fast evaluation of security policies. The techniques developed in this effort will be useful beyond this project. The results will greatly benefit society by increasing the adoption of policy-based computing. To promote education and learning, this effort actively involves high school, undergraduate, graduate students, especially students from under-represented minorities.
