Dr. Barba awarded $299K NSF grant

September 11, 2017

Dr. Lorena Barba was awarded a $299,847 grant from the National Science Foundation for the project “Cyberinfrastructure Reproducibility Project: Computational Science and Engineering.”  The project began September 1.  It is a response to the NSF CISE Directorate's Dear Colleague Letter Encouraging Reproducibility in Computing and Communications Research.  It uses methodical replication of studies in computational fluid dynamics as the model for understanding sources of non-reproducibility in science, and for developing guiding principles of study design that can guarantee, as much as possible, reproducible findings.
