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

Gabriel Casabona Receives DOE CSGF Fellowship
March 28, 2019
Masters physics student Gabriel Casabona has received the DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, a highly-prestigious four-year graduate fellowship awarded to approximately 25 recipients nationwide each year. The fellowship carries a generous stipend of $36,000 annually, paid tuition and fees at any Ph.D. granting-institution in the US, an annual academic allowance for professional development and computer equipment, and a 12-week practicum at a DOE national laboratory. Gabriel studies turbulence-driven detonation of thermonuclear supernovae with CSCVR faculty member Robert Fisher.
Public lecture on black holes and gravity waves
February 21, 2019
CSCVR faculty member, Scott Field, gave an ICERM Public Lecture on Discovering Black Holes and Gravitational Waves: Algorithms and Simulation. The event, which was attended by about 120 people, summarized the 100 years of work leading up to the recent Nobel-prize-winning gravitational wave detection. The talk especially focused on key contributions from mathematicians and computational scientists. The video can be viewed here.
