Software engineering is vital to Seattle’s emergence as a tech leader driving a local climate of innovation. The new Scientific Software Engineering Center (SSEC) at UW’s eScience Institute will leverage local software engineering talent to advance scientific frontiers that will change the world around us and respond to the challenges that face humanity. The SSEC, […]

With the results of our 2019 Winter Incubator program in, we offered participants the opportunity to weigh in on their experiences in this data science- intensive 10-week program. Two of them responded; here are their thoughts.
Stuart Ian Graham, UW Biology Department
I had the invaluable experience of working with Dr. Ariel Rokem in the […]
Nineteen project leads, eScience data scientists, and researchers participated in this year’s Winter Incubator program, which focused on projects in hydrology, political science, astronomy, atmospheric science and neuroscience. The five teams met over the course of 10 weeks to develop their projects, and presented their results on Mar. 13, 2018 in the WRF Data Science […]
Have you ever wondered why the universe looks the way it does, with isolated galaxies loosely arranged like pearls on the cosmic web? The key to understanding the structure of the universe lies in finding out just how the universe formed after the Big Bang.
Immediately after the Big Bang, the universe was so small and hot […]
Oceanography is currently witnessing a data explosion, with new instruments being deployed that collect high frequency, multi-parameter datasets, both remotely, with satellites, and in situ, with new instruments such as the SeaFlow cytometer. As a result, oceanographers have begun to use large-scale statistical machine learning tools to analyze these substantial datasets, thereby accelerating scientific discovery […]
