Beerli, Peter
Professor

Research Interests:

I started out my science career as a practical evolutionary biologist working with frogs on islands in the mediterranean sea. There was no good analysis software for my data available at that time. Therefore, in 1994, I started a career as a computational biologist developing software (MIGRATE: https://popgen.sc.fsu.edu) for other biologists to analyze large-scale DNA datasets and compare different evolutionary hypotheses. My interests have centered on the coalescent and how we can use that to infer parameters of population genetic models and also compare them statistically.

Erlebacher, Gordon
Professor & Chair, Department of Scientific Computing
Program Director, Interdisciplinary Data Science

Research Interests:

I am interested in the modeling, analysis and simulation of neuronal populations, single and multiple astrocytes, and other biological structures, both on serial and parallel architectures. Other areas of research include neural networks with evolving topologies. Other areas of research include the application of gaming and gaming artificial intelligence to education, visualization and feature extraction.
Gunzburger, Max
Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor / Krafft Professor

Research Interests:

Huang, Chen
Associate Professor

Research Interests:

I am interested in computational material science. Two main research topics in my group are: (1) developing new multiphysics methods to achieve high accuracy in materials simulations (such as predicting novel electronic structures at oxide interfaces) and (2) developing new orbital-free density functional theory to enable large-scale, accurate simulations of functional materials (such as metal alloys and lithium battery materials).
