I Won Best Paper at EduPar'20!

While I have been part of the CsinParallel leadership team since 2015, this is the first time I am participating as a PI! I am really excited about this award (especially since it is my first NSF grant), and looking forward to working with the CSinParallel team on this new endeavour!
