Current and Past HPCI Projects

High Performance Computing Initiative Projects

Lung Lesions Predictions, Dr. Benjamin Becerra

  • This project utilizes electronic health records (EHR) mostly available from public datasets, such as Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) or California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) to uncover predictive patterns in patient or hospital level health-related outcomes.

Geological Sciences, Dr. Kerry Cato

Models of Perception and Cognition, Dr. Pablo Gomez

  • This project uses latency and accuracy data from perceptual decision making tasks to uncover the relationship among cognitive skills.

Symbolic Computations in Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra, Dr. Youngsu Kim

  • The project's goal is to find and verify examples in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra using Macaulay2 and to test run Macaulay2 packages.

Ancient Egyptian Wadi el-Hudi Expedition, Dr. Kate Liszka and Bryan Kraemer

  • The project is creating an interactive 3D model of a large archaeological site in southeastern Egypt, Wadi el Hudi using tens of thousands of created from tens of thousands of still images shot by the researchers and student assistants on-site.

Cryptography, Dr. Jeffrey Meyer

  • This project implements and tests certain cryptosystems such as RSA and those based upon elliptic curves and lattices.  This includes certain sieving methods and lattice reduction algorithms.

Electronic Structures of Inorganic Extended Solids and Quantum Materials, Dr. Joyce Pham

  • Upon synthesizing new inorganic extended solids/materials, this research uses electronic structures from quantum mechanics to understand what gives rise to the resulting crystalline structures. In particular, VASP employs first-principles to study how electrons in various orbitals interact among one another. Various calculations including formation energies, Bader charge, and pair-wise orbital interactions are employed to provide a guide to our experiments.
