The NGS helps to forecast crime rates!

NGS user Nick Malleson at the University of Leeds recently had his research featured in Scientific Computing World which has a readership of over 96,000 worldwide!

Nick is using the NGS to forecast crime rates in the city of Leeds by carrying out sophisticated modelling of possible crime scenarios that would be impossible to perform on a desk top PC.

Nick explained “This is where the NGS was essential for the project to be feasible. Without access to NGS resources, the project would not have been able to continue. I can now achieve hundreds of results in a few days where I would have previously only produced one”.

If you would like to read the article on Nick’s research and how the NGS was able to help, follow this link to the article on the Scientific Computing World website.

The NGS Liaison Officer, Gillian Sinclair, often receives enquiries from editors looking for interesting and accessible researcher using grid computing and it's great publicity for the researcher and the NGS when we can match them up!

If you'd like to make sure your research stands out then make sure your use case in your NGS application is up to date and accurate with lots of keywords as this is the main source of our information when looking for specific research.
