Building as the earth quakes COVID Chasers

A building, even a skyscraper, is only as strong as its foundation. Models and data-driven portals function robustly in the presence of a strong software infrastructure. In this episode, we talk to Drs. Henning Mortveit and Stefan Hoops about some of the infrastructure that supports the complex computer simulations used for pandemic response. They also reminisce about their shared alma mater and what has kept them going during the year of remote work.

Stefan Hoops is a Research Associate Professor in the Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing division, Biocomplexity Institute, UVA. His research interests include modeling and simulation of biochemical systems, management and analysis of systems biology data sets, and reverse-engineering of biochemical networks.

Henning Mortveit is an associate professor in the Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing division, Biocomplexity Institute, and in the Department of Engineering Systems and Environment, UVA. His research work revolves around massively interacting systems whose network components co-evolve with time and is rooted in the framework of Graph Dynamical Systems (GDS). Part of his work covers software and system design for scalable, scientific computing. You can read his full bio here.
