Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems

The Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES) was formed in 2016 to develop new advanced Process Systems Engineering (PSE) capabilities to improve the efficiency and reliability of t…

The Usable Data Systems (UDS) group* performs research and development on software and methodology for improving the usability, quality, and security of scientific computing. The group is a mix of software engineers and computer scientists. We work with earth scientists, material scientists, chemists, process engineers, and physicists, as well as the NERSC and ESNet facilities. Our approach is distinguished by a strong focus on usability and user research, early and often in the software design process because we believe that designing the best systems can only occur when we have the best understanding of the constraints, needs, and culture of the scientists who will use it.
