Mailler receives grant to research computers that track objects in space

Roger Mailler, an assistant professor in The University of Tulsa’s Tandy School of Computer Science, has received a prestigious National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. The honor recognizes talented early-career faculty members with grants to support integrated research and teaching.

Mailler will receive $451,000 during the next five years for his proposed project “Problem Solving in Dynamic, Distributed Environments.” Using thermodynamic theory, he will research the use of computers as they are networked together to solve complex problems in rapidly changing environments. The theoretical model will be applied to a practical problem of allocating telescopes to track objects in Low Earth Orbit.
