Ongoing research projects at the Center for Scientific Computing and Immersive Technologies include a range of topics in our research focus areas.
- In bioinformatics, center Director Lonnie Welch is engaged in collaborative genomic research with the Edison Biotechnology Institute to develop algorithms that could lead to a cure for diabetes.
- Medical image analysis advancements are being explored by Dr. Jundong Liu, who is using images to help measure and study brain differences in patients with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.
- Dr. Avinash Karanth is designing an exascale computer that generates a fraction of the heat and processes data thousands of times faster than the world’s current supercomputers.
- In the VITAL Lab, Dr. Tiao Chang has developed applications for learning about environmental change to allow a research boat that collects water and biological samples to transmit data to classrooms, where the data can be studied and analyzed by Dr. Rasvan Bunescu.
