The Technology Services Amazon Web Services (AWS) team is positioned to assist you with the AWS Cloud Credits for Research Program. Through this program, Amazon directly awards researchers credits for the use of AWS to enhance cloud-based research.
Dr. Maria L. Chu, Assistant Professor in Agricultural and Biological Engineering, studies how a variety of factors alter how water moves in the watershed—affecting its quantity and quality.
Dr. Eliu Huerta Escudero and his team are extending our understanding of gravitational wave astronomy by developing new tools that detect and characterize wave sources in dense stellar environments.
Dr. Xiaohui Chen, Assistant Professor in Statistics, and his team are mining data to help neuroscientists find the mechanism that makes neurodegenerative diseases tick.
Tandy Warnow and Michael Nute are researching what makes us different from other species and from one another by producing biological sequence analyses as it relates to genetic trees. They use the Illinois Campus Cluster Program (ICCP) to study the human microbiome and add what they find to existing genetic trees.
Dr. Felipe Menanteau, a Research Scientist at NCSA and Research Associate Professor of Astronomy, and the Dark Energy Survey team study the universe and use sky mapping exercises to try to understand where everything came from and if we are alone.
Technology Services has a new story looking at the tiny differences in gut bacteria that may lead to large discoveries like curing autism. The Illinois Campus Cluster makes it possible for Professor Tandy Warnow and Ph.D. student Michael Nute to run complex computations to analyze billions of DNA sequences.
Tornados are more common in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world. But to really understand these intense wind funnels of destruction, you need lots and lots of data. That’s what scientist Leigh Orf with the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is working on, with the help of one very important tool—a massive supercomputer.
