HPC Master's thesis research projects at PDC

There are two main kinds of HPC research: research in other areas which uses HPC for simulations or analysis, and research on improving HPC systems and how we use them. Often these are combined in projects that test future HPC systems by using them to run applications. At times PDC has openings for this kind of research.
