High Performance Computing Program Projects
Optimizing Traffic Monitoring Using Drones, Dr. Sepideh Alavi and Dr. Nasrin Mohabbati
Dr. Alavi and Dr. Mohabbati introduced an innovative mathematical model to tackle the challenging task of routing and scheduling multiple drones in a road network for traffic monitoring. Utilizing drones for traffic monitoring is a cost-effective, flexible, and efficient solution. The proposed model has practical applications, such as monitoring highways, identifying emergency situations, and enhancing the quality of future policy-making. They have been using the HPC resources at CSUSB to solve large-scale instances of the problem.
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.
Symbolic Computations in Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra, Dr. Youngsu Kim
Dr. Kim and his graduate student study various algebraic structures using SageMath and Macaulay2, computer algebra software.
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.
Investigations in Statistics, Dr. Suthakaran Ratnasingam
- With R and RStudio, Dr. Ratnasingam investigates several topics in Statistics for (undergraduate) research.
