Ending 2020 with 23 bright interns

Twenty-three students have joined the annual Pawsey Summer Internship program, which began in December, 2020.

Annually, this 10-week intensive internship program selects students to delve deeper into their scientific areas through high-performance computing.

Students are supervised by project leads on their respective projects, which range from geophysical use of HPC, atomic and molecular photon collisions and interfaces; GPU-based and accelerated research; metageonics, molecular dynamics,  quantum combinatorial optimisation, particle transport simulations, phenotyping in HPC, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity; optimised machine learning for genomics and visualisation through sleep datasets.

For the first time, these students are being supported by dedicated mentors – Edric Matwiejew and Tarun Bonu. These mentors are previous Pawsey Interns who have showcased excellence in their fields and are now passing on their knowledge to the next group of Pawsey Interns.

To learn more about the students, mentors and their projects, read their dedicated profiles on Pawsey’s Facebook page.

Projects this year come from institutions across Australia including Pawsey Supercomputing CentreMurdoch University, RMIT, Data61, Curtin University, University of Technology Sydney, The University of Western Australia, the Australian National University, Monash University.

With the internships ending in February, the students have been tasked to present their work as posters during the first Pawsey Friday of 2021. Registration details will be announced in early 2021.
