Amazing weather on GPUs.

The demands on the national weather service are continuously increasing. Weather simulations are essential for flight safety, storm warnings and in the event of nuclear or chemical disasters. In order to achieve accurate forecasts and create more realistic simulations, new and higher resolution weather models with a mesh distance of about one kilometre are needed. To meet this requirement, MeteoSwiss has joined forces with CSCS to develop our next generation of weather forecasting models (COSMO-1 and COSMO-E) which run on a Cray CS-Storm cluster with fat GPU nodes.

Amazing cryptography.

If I had a Cray I would like to run a good comprehensive research project on the secure nature of the AES algorithm, carry out cryptanalysis and see just how secure an algorithm it is.

Ever since AES was released people have had doubts about its security and rumors about security trap doors known to security agencies have always existed.

No such comprehensive study has been carried out in academia and a Cray will provide the required computing power to do this properly and completely and most important publish the results. Given the presence of this algorithm in many aspects of our digital data security this I believe is of utmost importance.

Other cryptography work can also be done with a Cray supercomputer, number theory research, practical applications of theoretical cryptographic protocols (such as secure multi party computation protocols) among many other cryptographic topics.

Amazing wildlife conservation.

I study primate biogeography and conversation GIS. I use global datasets and spatial models to analyze patterns in how primate distributions and extinction risk have changed in response to forest habitat loss and use that information to inform conservation and management. I use HPC to run models and analyses, and faster, better computers help me run better, more complex models faster to save all the monkeys!! They are the most threatened vertebrate group on earth with over 60% of species facing extinction.
