Center Member Receives NSF Grant for Family Reunification Project


Professor of Computer Science Chen Li has received a $50,000 NSF grant for his project entitled ‘RAPID: Supporting Family Reunification for the Haiti Earthquake and Future Emergencies.’ Li is leading the effort on developing a web site for family reunification in response to the Haiti earthquake. The techniques developed in this project will potentially have a broad impact on many information systems that are moving towards the cloud-computing paradigm.
