Randal Burns NeuroData Plumber and Data-Intensive HPC

Projects and Software

I am currently working on software systems that provides data analysis and visualization solutions for large scale data that would otherwise be inaccessible. The can be roughly grouped into three categories:

Scale-Up Analysis Frameworks

Software

  • The FlashX tools for big data analysis of graphs and matrixes.

Active Projects

  • “From RAGs to Riches: Utilizing Richly Attributed Graphs to Reason from Heterogeneous Data.” Co-PI with J. Vogelstein (PI), and C. Priebe. DARPA N66001-15-C-4041.

Cloud Systems for NeuroData Processing

Software

Funded research

  • “Synaptome of Mouse and Man.” PI with PI Stephen Smith. NIH 1R01NS092474
  • “Neural Circuits in Zebrafish: Form, Function and Plasticity.” Co-PI with PI Engert. NIH 1U01NS090449.
  • ” Computational Infrastructure for Brain Research: EAGER: BrainLab CI: Collaborative, Community Experiments with Data-Quality Controls through Continuous Integration.” PI Burns. NSF 1649880.

Analysis of Numcerical Simulations

Software

Funded research

  • “CIF21 DIBBs: Long Term Access to Large Scientific Data Sets: The SkyServer and Beyond.” Co-PI with PI Szalay. NSF 1261715
  • “CDS&E: Studying Multiscale Fluid Turbulence via Open Numerical Laboratories.” Co-PI with PI Meneveau NSF 1507468.
