High-Performance Computing

An interdisciplinary team led by Sen Chiao from Meteorology and Climate Science and Ehsan Khatami from Physics and Astronomy have just gone online with a new high-performance computing cluster that was funded by a $900,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for which Chiao is the Principal Investigator. The computer cluster, which went online this week, is housed at the computing facility for the SJSU Research Foundation, which was chosen when none of the existing facilities on the main campus were found to have sufficient cooling and power to support the energy needs of the new instrumentation.

The HPC facility will be put to use by faculty in almost every COS department, with researchers solving problems in areas as diverse as atmospheric science, condensed matter physics, astrophysics, bioinformatics and genomics, aerospace engineering, and applied mathematics.
