Welcome to ADAM at CSU!

This is the home site for information on the Center for Applied Data Analysis and Modeling at Cleveland State University.

The Center began in Spring 2020 under the direction of Assistant Professors Shawn D. Ryan (Math/Stat) and Thijs Heus (Physics). To address the pressing data needs of our community, we must create a first-of-its-kind interdisciplinary center in the heart of Northeast Ohio. “Big Data” itself has become a buzzword with a meaning that has become less precise in time. Instead the Center will have a focused name Center for Applied Data Analysis and Modeling (ADAM) and a focused mission with three main goals:

• Develop a cohesive strategy for promoting high performance computing across campus among faculty and integrate faculty reearch with the Ohio Supercomputing Center (OSC)
• Develop and apply interdisciplinary tools for analyzing large amounts of data
• Develop novel modeling approaches to use the data to address real-world problems facing industries in NE Ohio and across the world
• Visualize and present results in a compelling way
• Train the future workforce in these sectors that will guide the future of economic growth in NE Ohio.
The center will address each of these by bringing together interdisciplinary teams of researchers from all Colleges across the campus while providing support through pilot study funding and monthly seminars, a forum where a faculty member or industry professional can present current research and solicit help from the center members, support for student researchers in the summer.

    Wilbur Ouma, Ph.D. (OSC)
    Client Engineer, OSC
    The Center for Applied Data Analysis and Modeling (ADAM) is happy to host a seminar on computing resources at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), both for research and classroom purposes. OSC is a fantastic resource for computing, backup, and many other purposes and it is free for most Ohio university usage.Wilbur Ouma of OSC will give an overview of the services they can provide for us. After his talk, there should be time for questions and discussion of computing needs for individual faculty, classrooms, or projects.
    The presentation will be held via Zoom: https://csuohio.zoom.us/j/84089098159 If you’re interested to attend, RSVPs are appreciated. Also, feel absolutely free to spread the word around campus!
