Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. “We believe the facility we’re proposing will have a huge impact on our campus by enabling big-data analysis and new science.” Liu leads the Lehigh team that recently received a nearly $1 million grant to fund the development of a heterogeneous edge computing platform for real-time scientific machine learning. The award is part of the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation program (MRI), which supports the development or acquisition of equipment that will advance science and engineering.
