Modelling and Scientific Computing (Modsci) is a highly-active interdisciplinary research group comprising some 25 full-time researchers (plus associates and student interns) with wide-ranging mathematical, statistical and computational modelling expertise. The Group has extensive external collaborations, which include RCSI, TCD, DIT, ITT, WIT, LM Ericsson and SUN, as well as academic partners in Europe, US and China. The over-arching focus of the group is on computational models and methods in exploring the natural and artificial world through solutions to problems, which, because of their complexity, are intractable by conventional methods. Complex systems arise in many fields, e.g. physics, biology, chemistry, finance, socio-economic phenomena, eco-and other hybrid sciences, to name just a few.
Recently, members of the group, together with colleagues in Maths, Electronic Engineering, Mechanical and Mechanical Engineering and Biotechnology, have been recognised as a University Designated Research Centre (UDRC), led by the School of Computing, under the title of Centre for Scientific Computing & Complex Systems Modelling (SCI-SYM).
Major sub-groups in ModSci. at the current time include:
Biocomputation (with research on Bio-systems modelling, Bioinformatics, Biometrics, Models of disease, Bio-diversity and AI - for bio and artificial systems and Pattern Recognition);
Financial and Socioeconomic Modelling (including projects in Econophysics, statistics of Accounting, and multivariate techniques in Finance);
Substantive sub-group in Environmental Modelling (including expertise in Wind and Wave Energy
and Pollution Modelling).
