Back in grad school I built mathematical models of electrical activity in the human heart. One of the best computers we had access to was a 16 CPU Sequent Symmetry, just like white rack on the right in my lab shown below. I'm still interested in network clustered hardware and distributed parallel programming.
In order to describe how the heart works, we tested mathematical models, and in order to do this, we developed computational algorithms to simulate the nonlinear dynamics of heart tissue and the way electrical waves propagate through it.
I'm still interested in:
- network clustered hardware and distributed parallel programming
- constructing Beowulf clusters to model complex physical systems
- developing computational algorithms to simulate nonlinear dynamics and wave propagation.
- zero-maintenance systems limited primarily by the lifetime of mechanical disks and fans.
- building collaborative relationships with academic partners
