The Research Computing Series is a great opportunity to learn about the resources available to faculty, staff and students. The Fall 2023 Research Computing Series will feature two sessions.
The first session spotlights postdoctoral research. Physics postdoctoral research associate Raj Kumar Manna will discuss how he leverages University computing resources in his research on self-organization in living matter and soft-matter systems. Currently, Manna’s work involves identifying biophysical mechanisms and quantifying forces that contribute to cell shape changes in a developing organ (Kupffer’s vesicle) of the zebrafish embryo.
The second session will feature David Aja, a solutions engineer from Posit, a leading data science company providing support for R and other open-source and cloud-based products. Aja will share how researchers with varying levels of R experience can take advantage of Slurm and HTCondor clusters available to faculty and students engaged in academic research.
The sessions will take place via Microsoft Teams:
• Physics postdoctoral research associate Raj Kumar Manna—Wednesday, Nov. 8, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
• Posit solutions engineer David Aja—Wednesday, Nov. 15, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
