Industrial Projects & Visualization Services

Adrian started working at the Center for Computational Research as a student in 2001.  Since graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Study from the University at Buffalo in 2003, he has worked at CCR full time.  In May of 2013 Adrian finished his Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at the University at Buffalo.

Areas of Support:

Industrial Outreach

Support businesses throughout New York State by allowing access to the high-performance computing (HPC) hardware and associated University at Buffalo (UB) faculty/staff expertise. This access allows industry partners to quickly and inexpensively solve complex mission-critical design, engineering, and data analysis problems. Furthermore, industries can leverage the HPC infrastructure to accelerate internal R&D and support competitive externally funded grant proposals.


Center of Excellence in Materials Informatics

The Center of Excellence in Materials Informatics (CMI) provides access to world-class equipment, business support services, UB faculty, funding and incentive programs and much more. The CMI supports in educating local industry in the benefits of using data-driven discovery to improve materials design, product design, process design and lifecycle management.


Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data Analytics

Manage projects for the Buffalo Institute for Genomics (BIG) and Data Analytics, which was created in 2014 to provide informatics and biomedical expertise to advance genomic medicine.  The intentions are for BIG to become a community asset which provides operational resources to create innovation and new jobs among its partners and industry.


Urban Visualization and Transportation Engineering:

Develop real-time 3D urban simulation software for the purposes of planning, design and public outreach. Work closely with engineers, architects and urban planners to ensure accuracy and authenticity in projects.

CCR works closely with various disciplines within the University at Buffalo; including the Urban Design, Traffic Engineering, and Architecture departments. This unique collaboration allows CCR to visualize numerous projects, some being the future of UB seen in both the UB2020 Masterplan Visualization as well as the University at Buffalo Virtual Tour.

Capabilities include:

  • Viewing existing conditions
  • Toggling proposed conditions (roadway, buildings, etc.)
  • Incorporating traffic data
  • Viewable on mobile devices or via a web browser



Assist and create in a wide variety of media disciplines.

Capabilities include:

  • 3D modeling; both real-time and animation
  • 3D data conversion
  • Design of posters and flyers
  • Video creation
  • Website Support
  • Organization of specific events and trade shows.
