Laboratory for Computational Research in Science and Technology

Welcome to the Laboratory for Computational Research in Science and Technology (CRSTLab)!  The laboratory was established in 2013 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and is located at 2134 Glenn L. Martin Hall at the University of Maryland in College Park.  The mission of the lab is to develop and apply advanced methods of computing to solve problems at the so-called Frontiers of Computability in Science.  We work to illuminate answers to fundamental scientific problems through computing and theory.

Research Themes
