I was just awarded a large allocation on the Italian national supercomputer at CINECA. My PhD student Viola De Renzis (our parameter-estimation expert!) is the co-I on our proposal. Our award is part of the so-called ISCRA Class B program (which is their medium-size allocation scheme) and amounts to 1.2M CPUh on the Galileo cluster (that is: we’re going to have to crunch a ton of numbers now!). Viola and I will study the extraction of spin-spin couplings from black-hole binaries using gravitational-wave data and stochastic sampling techniques. Stay tuned!
Got an ISCRA-B supercomputer allocation!
