Physics of a deadly virus uncovered with UW’s supercomputer

Read how UW researchers are using Hyak, the University’s supercomputer, to speed up critical, potentially life-saving research on COVID-19. It’s because research being done by Zachary Montague in the Department of Physics could continue without interruption that Hyak was declared an essential research facility early during the pandemic. Other pandemic-related research on Hyak is under way, including a study looking at using artificial intelligence techniques to help predict which COVID-19 patients are at highest risk for heart complications from the illness.
