The mission of the
dwAdvanced Computing and Simulation Laboratory (AXL) is to further the knowledge in modeling and simulation of physical processes and apply this to gain better understanding and utilization of applications in telecommunications, biological processes and signal processing. The laboratory will undertake its mission through the assembly of interdisciplinary teams, combining expertise in: photonics, optics and other telecommunications disciplines; computer science and parallel and distributed processing; life science and biomedicine and signal processing. These teams will bring quantitative scientific approaches to cohesively execute research programs in interdisciplinary areas.
