Increasingly, the scale of data analysis means that computation can no longer be carried out on a laptop — often the only resource easily available to researchers. And while the Berkeley Research Computing (BRC) Program offers many powerful resources to researchers, it’s not always clear where to get started.

ESPM postdoc crosses 150 years of observational biology with satellite data to mitigate biodiversity loss

Paul Elsen, postdoctoral scholar, UC Berkeley Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

Graduating from UC Berkeley as a cognitive science major in 2006, conservation biologist Paul Elsen would have never guessed that he would return to Berkeley a decade later to become a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management. Following completion of his M.A. and Ph.D in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, Elsen returned to the West Coast and is now a David H.

Digital Humanist aims to run OCR over a terabyte of rare book scans

Adam Anderson, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Humanities

Since his college days at Brigham Young University (BYU), Adam Anderson has been measuring evenings and weekends in pages, rather than hours. “You can scan about 400 pages an hour, once you get in the groove,” he explains. Anderson, a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at UC Berkeley, has spent his career scanning texts in order to draw upon secondary literature in archaeology and computational linguistics.

Research IT welcomes Emilia Malachowski, communications intern

Emilia Malachowski, BRC Communications intern

Research IT welcomes Communications Intern Emilia Malachowski to our team. Emilia will be working with Berkeley Research Computing (BRC) users to report on how the program benefits researchers in their fields of study. The collection of stories and interviews that will be gathered through this work will convey how BRC is supporting the evolution of data science and research computing across the campus.

New BRC service making an impact at Haas School of Business

Haas School of Business MFE Program home page with Shihong Wen quotation "The AEoD platform enables us to do research more efficiently with higher memory computation power."

A cohort of students in Haas’s Masters of Financial Engineering (MFE) program have been using Analytics Environments on Demand (AEoD) to work on their Applied Finance Projects, the final projects in the MFE program. Five Applied Finance Project teams used AEoD resources, serving a total of twenty students. AEoD is a new research computing service offered by Berkeley Research Computing.
