Seyed is working on compute cluster

The ABM-Lab offers research and training programs to develop professional skills with a solid theoretical background in computational epidemiology and vaccine science, with particular emphasis on infectious disease dynamics, inference and data analytics, stochastic modelling and simulations, and use of advanced methods for informing public health decision-making. These programs provide an enriched environment for networking activities and collaborations across disciplines with the involvement of stakeholders, industrial partners, and knowledge users.

The ABM-Lab hosts Areto compute cluster infrastructure, established under a Canada Foundation for Innovation JELF award, with a private network, Mac Pro workstations for all research activities, a high-end server, and large storage capacity. Smart technologies and communication portals are available for collaboration, sharing information, and knowledge generated in the Lab. The ABM-Lab is an independent research entity in the Faculty of Science, and its research and training activities are supported by several funding agencies including CIHR, NSERC, Mitacs and industrial partners.
