Research Computing was established in 2007 as part of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences (FAS) Division of Science, with the founding principle of facilitating the advancement of complex research by providing leading edge computing services. Research Computing staff maintain expertise in constantly changing computing technologies, while “speaking the language” of FAS researchers, to help them use computing more effectively.
Computational resources are available for high performance and scientific computing, bioinformatic analysis, visualization, and data storage. Research Computing continually expands its services and technologies, ensuring researchers have access to a world-class computational environment.
Through dedicated leadership and enterprising stewardship, Research Computing is committed to developing a large-scale computing infrastructure that helps researchers with the big data challenges of the 21st century.
