Zhaosong Lu wins NSF grant

ISyE professor Zhaosong Lu has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant for his project "New Machine Learning Empowered Nanoinformatics System for Advancing Nanomaterial Design.” This grant is funded by the Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS) Division.

Dr. Lu's project will address the computational challenges in large-scale nanomaterial data mining, development and validation of an automated informatics framework to digitalize nanostructures, identify molecular markers, and support fast nanomaterial retrieval and integrative analysis. The investigations combine rigorous theoretical analysis and emerging application studies and will contribute to both academic research and potential commercialized products. This project will advance and thus extend the relationship between engineering innovation and computational analysis, and hold great promise for nanomaterial and nanomedicine developments.
