DSU student chosen for national research program
DSU student, Dylon Kiley, was recently accepted into the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Cyberinfrastructure Student Engagement Program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Kiley will spend one year involved in this research event with the initial gathering at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C. at the end of February. Selected students then participate in bi-weekly online sessions presented by leaders in cyberinfrustructure. The program is designed to provide students with opportunities to explore cyberinfrustructure including high performance computing, high throughput computing, data mining and management, visualization, networking and cloud services. Participants then have the opportunity to attend the supercomputing conference, SC12, all expenses paid. The conference is in Salt Lake City, Utah, November 10-16, 2012.
Kiley was chosen as one of the 87 undergraduate and graduate participants from the 29 EPSCoR jurisdictions around the U.S. Kiley is double majoring in computer science and mathematics for information systems with a minor in physics and is from Belle Fourche, S.D. He also serves as a lab assistant in the College of Arts and Sciences’ physics lab.
