Human-centered design can help San Diego address the COVID-19 pandemic and put our city on course to be more sustainable, too. That’s the basic premise of the 2020 edition of the city-wide design challenge from UC San Diego’s Design Lab called “Design for San Diego,” or D4SD for short.
UC San Diego nanoengineers offer a research roadmap describing four challenges that need to be addressed in order to advance a promising class of batteries, all-solid-state batteries, to commercialization. The researchers describe their work to tackle these challenges over the past three years.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego has announced the launch of ‘HPC Share’, a data sharing resource that will enable users of the Center’s high-performance computing resources to easily transfer, share, and discuss their data within their research teams and beyond.
Researchers at the University of Rhode Island (URI) used the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s 'Comet' supercomputer to show that high-performance computer modeling can accurately simulate tsunamis from volcanic events.
In coastal communities prone to hurricanes, people typically turn to engineered solutions for protection: levees, sea walls and the like. But a natural buffer in the form of wetlands may be the more cost-effective solution, says the most comprehensive study of its sort to date.
Six UC San Diego researchers have been named to receive prestigious 2020 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowships. Considered among the most promising researchers working today, the new UC San Diego Sloan fellows are part of a cohort of 126 early career scientists selected in the U.S. and Canada.
SDSC and WIPAC researchers have conducted a second NSF-funded experiment that proves it is possible to elastically burst to very large scales of GPUs using the cloud.
The Protein Data Bank archive has released a new Coronavirus protease structure following the recent coronavirus outbreak, an ongoing viral epidemic primarily affecting mainland China that now threatens to spread to other parts of the world.
Researchers at Oregon State University have been using the Comet supercomputer at SDSC to test an algorithm they believe will reduce errors in the widely used three-day forecasts for water temperature, salinity levels, sea heights, and currents off the Oregon and Washington coasts.
A new study published late last year in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society used supercomputer simulations to explore molecular gas within and surrounding the intracluster medium, or the space between galaxies in a galaxy cluster.
