Faculty at the Center for Scientific Computing and Data Science Research.

The Center for Scientific Computing and Data Science Research at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth focuses on computationally-driven research that addresses the pressing needs of modern engineering, mechanics, fluid dynamics, and electromagnetics. Our annual HPC Day event howcases on-going scientific research in Massachusetts that is enabled through high-performance computing.

The research groups at the Center span a wide range of the applied sciences departments at UMassD, including

CSCDR student alumni starts new faculty position
August 20, 2021
Congratulations to alumni Suoqing Ji (advised by CSCDR faculty Bob Fisher), who is joining the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Ji earned his M.S. degree in physics at UMassD in 2013 before going to UC Santa Barbara for his Ph.D. Most recently, he has been a Sherman Fairchild Prize postdoctoral fellow at Caltech.
