Xiaolong Guo, Kansas State University assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, was selected for a $490,000 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program award, known as a CAREER award, to develop the tool that aims to save time and money for semiconductor manufacturers. See K-State news to learn more about this exciting 5-year endeavor.

This major milestone comes on the heels of Dr. Guo winning a $50,000 First Award from ARISE last November, a grant designed to jumpstart novel research and successful careers in Kansas.

“The First Award from KS EPSCoR made significant contributions to advancing the research in my lab, paving the way for this NSF Career Award,” Guo said. “It allowed me to progress in the direction of generative AI, which is a major focus of my current project. Once again, I sincerely appreciate your support.”
