more recently computational epidemiology ( RTI
A. Simoni 's currently guides various
participants of the NIH Models of Infectious Disease
Agent Study (MIDAS) research network in the
efficient use of large supercomputing resources, in
particular those related to the NSF TeraGrid .
A. Simoni is Co-PI of a TeraGrid MRAC and
either PI or Co-PI of various other TeraGrid DACs
for projects involving the implementation of
computational epidemiology codes on the several
TeraGrid architectures, including Condor, SMP
machines and MPI-based fully distributed
A. Simoni was a grand prize winner at
TeraGrid ’06 in which he proposed the use of
TeraGrid resources for supporting national-level
models of infectious disease that span 12 orders is
