Congratulations to Prof. Zhao for winning a CAREER award, the most prestigeous National Science Foundation grant for young faculty! The award, titled "CAREER: Transducer-Centric Parallelization for Scalable Semi-Structured Data Processing", supports research on the parallelization of basic computation models, such as automata and transducers, with applications to semi-structured data processing and beyond. His research will enable automatic generation of parallel processing routines, such as parsing and validation for various types of semi-structured data.
