Prof. Boyana Norris Receives NSF Funding to Develop Novel Cyberinfrastructure Platform

Prof. Boyana Norris leads a new collaboration with researchers from the University of Missouri S&T and the University of North Texas on a project titled “Cyberinfrastructure for Accelerating Innovation in Network Dynamics,” or CANDY. The project is funded through a four-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

CANDY researchers are developing a new approach for updating dynamic networks, such as those used to represent internet traffic, track viruses, connect people on social media and coordinate transportation systems. Algorithms that analyze static networks are widely available, but a lack of cyberinfrastructure hampers innovative research in large-scale, complex, dynamic networks. This is the need that the CANDY project aims to address by creating scalable, expandable and user-friendly dynamic network analysis software infrastructure.
