Muzahid Joins NSF and Intel Joint Research Center Board of Advisors

Intel and the National Science Foundation (NSF) are partnering to establish up a new research center called the Computer Assisted Programming for Heterogeneous Architectures (CAPA).

Dr. Abdullah Muzahid, assistant professor in the UTSA Department of Computer Science, was selected as a board member to provide feedback on conducted CAPA research.

His groundbreaking research and deep understanding of the systems and application of machine learning drew the attention of the Intel and NSF partners.

Muzahid will be one of the few external academic members of the board, contributing his expertise and give recommendation on suggested future directions for the new center.

Recently, Muzahid received a seed grant from Intel Corporation in April 2017, an NSF CAREER award in the amount of $450K, and another NSF grant of around $250K.

The three year project will provide Muzahid a unique opportunity to establish connections with Intel and potentially provide future collaborative opportunities.
