Faculty at the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research.

The Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization 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
