ACRES is a 10-week summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in computational and data science. This REU is coordinated by Michigan State University’s Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering (CMSE), in partnership with the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (ICER).
Research projects provided though ACRES focus on the development and enhancement of algorithms, models, and software for applications in multiple research areas that require high-performance computing resources. Research areas include: computational biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics, as well as data science, and earth/climate sciences.
The program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The REU site directors for Summer 2024-2027 are Dr Alex Dickson and Dr Mahmoud Parvizi.
