ARC is a laboratory for research and innovation in the application of advanced computational and data-intensive research methods, working in partnership with academics from all fields across UCL.
UCL seeks to establish, in ARC, a globally leading platform for digital research.
ARC will be a laboratory for research and innovation in the application of advanced computational and data-intensive research methods, working in partnership with academics from all fields across UCL and beyond, producing high quality research outputs - software packages, data sets and research platforms as well as traditional papers.
We operate through a pool of permanent staff scientists and digital research professionals: research software engineers, data scientists, data stewards, informaticians and HPC systems engineers and research associates and fellows. We are proudly 'middle author scientists': working as part of research teams to deliver computational and data intensive capabilities. UCL academics looking to develop research proposals which could benefit from these teams should get in touch.
We also lead our own research in the methods of digital scholarship. This includes the development and maintenance of key software packages for digital research, reproducibility and verification for parallel simulation software, resilience and failure tolerance at the exascale, the use of natural language processing methodologies for largescale textual corpora, the combination of HPC and streaming telemetry data for digital twins, or the development of new methods for safely handling sensitive and confidential data.
To support this vision, ARC will operate an ambitious programme of international community events, workshops, and visiting researcher opportunities to strengthen our collaboration opportunities.
