Focusing on autism, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, this talk will touch the following questions: How can understanding of genetics and epidemiology of disease be advanced through modeling and computational analysis of very large and heterogeneous datasets? What are the bottlenecks in analysis of complex human maladies? How can we model and compute over multiple data types to narrow hypotheses about genetic causes of disease? How can collaborations across multiple fields of science bring translational results to initially purely academic studies?

The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a national-scale distributed infrastructure that provides free, opportunistic access to CPU cycles and data storage for researchers at US institutions. This workshop will teach the basics of distributed high-throughput computing (DHTC), including: batch job submission, data access, and identifying workloads that are a good fit for OSG. The workshop format will be a mix of short lectures and hands-on practical exercises.

Computational simulations are a rich environment for designing, visualizing, and discovering new phenomena in complex systems that can be inaccessible to theoretical and experimental studies.  In this research talk I will discuss three research areas where I have used simulation to study emergent behaviors in complex material systems.
