The Modelling and Simulations Team is part of Data61’s Computational Modelling Group and spans research domains ranging from the quantum, atomic and biological scale to materials flow and industrial sized machinery, up to off-world resource modelling and utilization.

We employ and develop both data-driven and theoretical based methods for applications with national and global collaborators guided by DATA61/CSIRO goals and missions. These span theoretic based solvers (e.g quantum mechanical methods, molecular dynamics, discrete element methods and smoothed particle hydrodynamics), data-driven (e.g machine learning, statistical) and human driven analytics (e.g NLP) along with hybrids approaches of these.
