The Coalition for Advanced Scientific Computation has recognized the research of a Center for Advance Vehicle Systems Researcher.
Joonsik Hwang, an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, is the winner of a competition held by the Coalition for Advanced Scientific Computation. The prize? Hwang's image will grace the cover of CASC's annual brochure highlighting research activities utilizing advanced computing at some of its member institutions.
To support its mission, CASC develops an annual brochure highlighting research activities utilizing advanced computing at some of its member institutions. Each year a competition is held to determine which member is selected for the brochure cover.
The brochure cover will feature a Combustion Engine CFD image from Hwang's work on reducing CO2 emissions.
The CASC is an organization of 93 institutions representing the nation's most forward-thinking universities and computing centers. The mission of CASC is to advocate for the importance of and the need for public and private research investment in research computing and data services to support academic research; serve as a trusted advisor to federal agencies on the direction of relevant funding programs; actively engage in discussions of policies related to research computing and data services; foster advancement of a robust and diverse community of current and emerging leaders in this field; and provide a forum for the community to share strategic ideas and best practices. Mississippi State is a member of the coalition through its HPC2 lab.
