Theoretical chemist Adam Willard (MIT) uses computers to better understand molecular level behavior of photovoltaic materials.
In this video meet seed-fund collaborators Markus Buehler (MIT) and Alain Karma (Northeastern) who use multiscale modeling to explore and test how biological materials like bone or nacre can, despite their apparent fragility, resist breakage.
Statistical, life science, and social science researchers gathered for a workshop on “Data Sciences for the Life Sciences in a High Performance Computing Environment” in February: the first formal opportunity for the researchers to learn how to effectively utilize the MGHPCC facility.

As part of January activities at MIT and at Harvard, two sets of classes brought students onto the MGHPCC systems to learn about computing technologies and about research areas that employ the technologies.
Supernovae have long been an object of fascination for astronomers and astrophysicists. They are the incredible explosions that take place at the end of a star's life cycle, and are among the brightest objects in the sky. Robert Fisher, a professor of astrophysics based at UMass Dartmouth, models their... Read more
MIT’s Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change (JPSPGC) seeks to combine scientific research on changes to land, air, and water with innovative policy analysis to confront the global climate challenge. Underpinning their scientific research efforts are complex computer models of many... Read more
