**Computation Across the Disciplines**

Throughout science and engineering fields, the availability of cheap computer processing power is driving increased interest in large-scale and multi-scale problems that were previously thought to be intractable or unsolvable through traditional methods. The rise of high-throughput, parallel, and distributed computing technologies has created a great need for researchers and practitioners with a deep understanding of computer science, mathematical modeling and statistical methods who can work across disciplines to build real solutions. This can include developing new computational methodologies, computer software and/or computer systems, as well as new theoretical models.

At the same time, ever smaller computing platforms have inserted
computation into mobile, embedded, and ubiquitous realms of human
experience that would have been unthinkable only a few years ago.
Energy consumption of both massive computing clusters and
battery-operated appliances is of great concern.

Our mentor research areas lie in all of these areas, as well as in how people learn to work in these fields, and how we prepare the next generation of students to explore computational sciences and mathematics.
