Christopher L. Barrett Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech
Barrett has pioneered the application of high-performance computing and network science to socio-technical, behavioral, and biological science. His experience includes simulation, scientific computation, algorithm theory and development, system science and control, engineering science, biosystems analysis, decision science, cognitive human factors, testing and training. His achievements include the development of large-scale, high performance simulation systems, and the development of a distributed computing approach for detailed simulation-based study of mobile, packet-switched digital communications systems. Barrett has been awarded a prestigious Jubilee Professorship in Computer Science and Engineering at Chalmers University in Sweden.
The NDSSL is pursuing an advanced research and development program for interaction-based modeling, simulation, and associated analysis, experimental design, and decision support tools for understanding large biological, information, social, and technological systems. Extremely detailed, multi-scale computer simulations allow formal and experimental investigation of these systems. The need for such simulations is derived from questions posed by scientists, policy makers, and planners involved with very large complex systems. The simulation applications are underwritten by a theoretical program in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science that is sustained by more than a decade of experience with the interplay of research and application. Laboratory members are currently pursuing active projects in Wireless Networks, Computational Epidemiology and Algorithms, Complex Networks and High Performance Computing.
