What we do
Our research group aims to build systems - particularly fast, efficient, distributed systems,
ranging from sensor networks monitoring bovine health levels to high performance computing systems.
This is frequently entwined with my role as the Director of the Institute for Computational Research in Engineering and Science,
which oversees the campus research HPC cluster, Beocat,
and building the cyberinfrastructure foundation for K-State to successfully compete at the national level.
