Numerical Algorithms

The Numerical Algorithms group works on the development of new computational and statistical methods for the analysis of large, complex datasets and for the accurate numerical simulation of biological processes.

The application areas include neuroscience, microscopy, systems biology and fluid flow. Our approaches range from mathematical and numerical analysis to the creation of software libraries. We currently focus on developing: software for identifying neural firing events in electrophysiological recordings s (a spike sorting); algorithms to determine the 3-D structure of proteins, protein complexes and cellular organelles from electron microscopy data (cryo-EM); models of microbial interactions in the ocean from genetic sequencing and time-series data; and new methods to solve the partial differential equations arising in complex biological fluid flows.
