Computer Science and Mathematics

The Computer Science and Mathematics research team is led by Barbara Chapman, a professor of Applied Mathematics & Statistics and Computer Science at nearby Stony Brook University. Its primary research subject is the development of advanced methods that enable large scale, multi-modal and streaming data analysis. The group takes a broad co-design approach, investigating novel techniques from the network and architecture level up to the application and workflow layers. The team’s research is informed by the data-handling needs of Brookhaven Lab’s large-scale scientific research facilities, such as the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II), the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), as well as the Laboratory’s involvement in research at the European Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other key projects such as the DOE’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program and the Systems Biology Knowledge Base.
