Rendering models is a key part of the modern architectural design process. Brendan Ho, a professor in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University, helps students analyze the spaces they live and work in. Rendering has been an essential component in his studio Encapsulated Episodes, co-taught with Director Ivan Bernal.
Sultana Nahar, a research professor in astronomy at The Ohio State University, discovererd the lack of support for female scientists around the world after a trip to Egypt. Nahar founded the International Society of Muslim Women in Science (ISMWS) to support these scientists, and the Ohio Supercomputer Center has provided these women access to HPC resources.
The Ohio State University Molecular and Cellular Imaging Center (MCIC) is directed by Tea Meulia and serves as a shared technology laboratory to facilitate research in microscopy, genomics and bioinformatics. Meulia connected with the Ohio Supercomputer Center as she realized the volumes of data they generated and processed required additional computational power.
D2H Advanced Technologies specializes in computational fluid dynamics, which is used to model how fluids behave when they are moving through and around objects. To provide their clients, such as NASCAR, with the best models and information possible, they turned to the Ohio Supercomputer Center to support their testing.
COVID-19 quickly became a politically polarized public health crisis, and Skyler Cranmer, the Carter Phillips and Sue Henry Associate Professor of Political Science in Ohio State’s College of Arts and Sciences, wanted to see if this was apparent on Twitter. Through OSC, Cranmer and his team studied the political division around the topic based on tweets.
Wasiur KhudaBukhsh, a president’s postdoctoral scholar at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at The Ohio State University, was part of a team called upon by the Ohio Department of Health to help model the COVID-19 pandemic. With help from OSC resources, the team was able to provide models for Governor DeWine's daily press conferences.
