DARWIN

DARWIN (Delaware Advanced Research Workforce and Innovation Network) is a big data and high performance computing system designed to catalyze Delaware research and education. An interdisciplinary team of researchers led by Rudolf (Rudi) Eigenmann, professor of electrical and computer engineering, has received a $1.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund DARWIN.

Broadly enabling Science at UD and in the region.

DARWIN will serve as a critical and transformative upgrade to Delaware’s cyberinfrastructure, enabling research and educational activities for a large number of faculty across all UD colleges as well as for users from academic and industrial partners within the broader Delaware region. The instrumentation is designed to enable research broadly across disciplines with diverse software and hardware needs including, but not limited to, problems that scale to large numbers of processors and data sets, involve large data transfers, use advanced graphics accelerators, and require new operating modes. It will also serve to train students and researchers on computational and data-intensive methods and enhance these skills in the greater Delaware region.

Our Mission

The Institute aims to accelerate research in data science, serving as a nucleating effort to catalyze interdisciplinary research collaborations across fields impacting our society.
