Bravaya Named 2014 Hariri Junior Faculty Fellow

The Junior Faculty Fellows program of Boston University’s Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering was established in 2011 both to recognize outstanding junior faculty at Boston University working in diverse areas of the computational sciences, as well as to provide focal points for supporting broader collaborative research in these areas at BU and […]

Holyoke marks opening of MA Green High Performance Computing Center

A $1.6M multi-university NSF grant has been awarded to support high-performance computing research. The grant will fund the purchase of a hybrid computing cluster that will combine high-performance computing CPU power with GPU accelerators. The cluster will be connected by dedicated 10 gigabit optical links to each of the partner universities in a regional consortium […]

NSF Funds Study to Explore Excited State Dynamics

Professor David Coker has received an award from the Chemical Theory, Models and Computational Methods Program in the NSF Division of Chemistry to study excited state dynamics in condensed phase systems. Using simulation and electronic structure methods, Professor Coker and his research group are developing accurate quantum mechanical techniques, in particular they are extending their […]

NSF Funds Investigation of Protein Structure and Dynamics

One of the great challenges in biological chemistry is understanding how protein structure informs function. Experimental studies have shown that by encapsulating proteins in surfactant micelles (nanoscale molecular aggregates, such as a droplet in a colloidal system) critical insights can be gained into protein structure, dynamics, and function. Currently, however, no one knows how the […]
