The University of Otago is at the technological frontier

“We are committed to ensuring that their research is successful and completed on time. If problems arise, we step in as quickly as we can.”
Subject: 

Modelling heterogeneous catalysis

"The successful utilisation of NeSI infrastructure for her research made Dr Anna Garden a local expert fully capable of helping out experimental chemists at the University of Otago."
Subject: 

Finite element modelling of biological cells

"As a result of this project the researchers' simulations are now running faster and robust software development practices are being utilised, giving the researchers confidence in their results and making future development easier."
Subject: 

Growing computational capacity among wet-lab scientists

"Coding is something we shouldn’t be afraid of and it is something we should embrace as scientists moving into the future of big data."
Subject: 
Atomistic behaviour

New frontiers for milk proteins: functional foods and drug delivery systems

“Our ongoing use of NeSI has allowed us to investigate the process of adsorption of b-Lactoglobulin at different oil/water interfaces, and so determine the physico-chemical forces that govern adsorption behaviour.”
Subject: 

Cellulose unchained

“NeSI is an amazing resource for the New Zealand science community. Not only is our dream to unchain the structure of cellulose within reach, it looks like we will be able to achieve it more smartly and quickly than ever.”
Subject: 

Molecular fingerprinting

"Access to the increased computing capacity of the NeSI supercomputers facilitated Dr Sibaev's research by speeding up the rate at which he was able to generate the data required for his project."

Retired but not forgotten: Algorithm research with a Supercomputer

"We are very grateful to NeSI for the use of Blue Gene and the supporting team. Thanks to their generosity, we were able to develop a culture of supercomputing and parallel programming at the University of Canterbury."
Subject: 
Quake damage

When getting back to basics is better than fancy new tools

"This is a classic example of the huge advances that are being achieved through our excellent collaboration with NeSI."
