The Data Science Institute (DSI) aims to accelerate research in data science, serving as a
nucleating effort to catalyze interdisciplinary research collaborations across fields
impacting our society.
Serving as a hub for interdisciplinary research, collaboration and excellence, the DSI
brings together faculty and students from seven colleges across campus to work
effectively with big data and address problems and opportunities facing society—from
health sciences, physical sciences, environmental sciences, to behavioral and social
sciences and public policy. The Institute will further involve partnerships with industry
and other institutions in the region.

The DARWIN Computing Symposium 2023—sponsored by the Data Science Institute of the University of Delaware—was held on February 23, 2023. It represented the fourth event in a series of Symposia motivated by a National Science Foundation (NSF) MRI Award, also known as the Delaware Advanced Research Workforce and Innovation Network (DARWIN). As part of an NSF Major Research Instrumentation award (OAC-1919839), DARWIN has the goal of catalyzing "research and education at the University of Delaware (UD) and partners by acquiring a big data and high-performance computing system and making this instrument available to the community." This fourth DARWIN Computing Symposium presented a wide variety of research enabled by the DARWIN machine to the Delaware community. It also showcased additional computational and data-enabled research, provided perspectives on broadening participation in computational and data-intensive research, and facilitated opportunities for forming collaborations among future users at UD and regional partners. In addition to the NSF and the Data Science Institute, the 2023 DARWIN Computing Symposium was sponsored by AMD, BioCurie, Chemours, and Tech Impact. Dr. Marianna Safronova, Professor of Physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Delaware, served as chair of the 2023 DARWIN Computing Symposium.
