After winning the IEEE-CS Technical Consortium on High-Performance Computing (TCHPC) Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers in High-Performance Computing and the 35 Innovators Under 35 Award in the Fall of 2017, Dr. Amanda Randles discovered she needed more space for her growing research team.
Now in its fourth year, Data+ is a 10-week summer research experience that welcomes Duke Undergraduates interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. Students join small project teams, working alongside other teams in a communal environment. They learn how to marshal, analyze, and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the modern world of data science.
Oak Ridge National Labs' (ORNL) Leadership Computing Facility allows faculty and graduate students to apply for core hours on its powerful computers, as well as access to its computers for smaller projects.
In a study led by Duke iiD's Patrick Green, scientists created some conflict between mantis shrimp to see if and when they would resort to drastic violence to solve it.
