Center for Applied Scientific Computing

Data Science & Analytics Group

Our goal is to enable scientists to concentrate on science by minimizing the effort required to explore and to understand the data generated by their simulations and experiments. This goal drives research efforts in large-scale visualization, data compression and streaming, data management and workflows, data analysis, and machine learning. To learn more about what we do, we invite you to look at some of the projects to which our group members contribute in the areas of precision medicine, climate modeling, cancer research, simulation workflows, data compression, and materials science. Our funding comes from a variety of sources including ASC, ECP, Laboratory Directed Research and Development, and the National Cancer Institute.
