The SCI Institute has established itself as an internationally recognized leader in visualization, scientific computing, and image analysis. The overarching research objective is to create new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems that enable solutions to problems affecting various aspects of human life. A core focus of the Institute has been biomedicine, but SCI Institute researchers also solve challenging computational and imaging problems in such disciplines as geophysics, combustion, molecular dynamics, fluid dynamics, and atmospheric dispersion.
SCI Institute research interests generally fall within four core tracks. The first track involves research into new techniques for scientific visualization and the development of visual analysis tools to facilitate understanding of increasingly complex and rich scientific data. The second track focuses on technical research into computational and numerical methods requisite for scientific computing. The third track involves creating new image analysis techniques and tools. The final track emphasizes research and development of scientific software environments. SCI Institute researchers also apply many of the above computational techniques within their own particular specialties, including fluid dynamics, atmospheric dynamics, biomechanics, electrocardiography, bioelectric fields, adaptive techniques, parallel computing, inverse problems, and medical imaging.
