The Centre for Scientific Computing is a multi-disciplinary, multi-school research centre facilitating computationally driven
research, throughout the sciences and engineering. This is achieved by the sharing of expertise in computational
methods and algorithms, encouraging the cross-fertilisation of ideas between researchers in the various disciplines, and
enabling access to high-performance computing resources.
Key Research Interests:
• Algorithm design, with particular reference to grid
• Algorithms for Bioinformatics
• Algorithms for Financial Mathematics
• Computational Chemistry and Physics
Application of research in an industry/societal context:
One of the main aims of the CSC is the creation of sustainable high technology employment in the South East
Region. It is engaged with local industry in a number of applied research projects. It is cooperating with universities in
Ireland and internationally in running a one-week PhD Summer School twice a year in Scientific Computing.
