Our Services

The Centre for eResearch is centrally funded by the University to deliver the following Services to help researchers address challenging computational problems. These services are generally free to use for  research staff and research students, but they are not infinite.  Large requests in terms of time or resources may require additional funding.

Research Computing

  • High performance computing
  • Virtual machines for research
  • Nectar research cloud
  • Other cloud computing

Research Data Solutions

  • Data management training
  • Data sharing & collaboration
  • Instrument data management
  • Data publishing & discovery

Visualisation & Analytics

  • Visualisation and data analytics
  • AI/Deep learning expertise
  • VR/AR equipment


Digital Research Skills

  • Research data management
  • Software Carpentry
  • Data Carpentry
  • Nectar Research Cloud Computing
  • Introduction to virtual machines
  • Research Bazaar (ResBaz)
  • Hacky Hour weekly community activities and online channel

Special Projects - Research

We also work with researchers to develop research tools that require significant development or customisation. These usually require funding to recover our costs.

 Research Showcase

Estimating quality of life: a spatial microsimulation model of wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand

This research focuses on wellbeing as an indicator of quality of life, we aim to create a nationwide dataset that can be used to understand wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Listening to equations: a tool for the audification of heteroclinic networks

Understanding the dynamics near heteroclinic networks is currently an active area of mathematical research, but the focus of the current project is somewhat different.

Using a virtual machine-based machine learning algorithm to obtain comprehensive behavioural information in an in vivo Alzheimer’s disease model

Utilising miniscope technology in a murine model of Alzheimer’s disease to characterise correlations between neuronal activity in the CA1 hippocampus, behavioural deficits and amyloid-beta plaque load.

Quantifying gas narcosis in compressed gas diving

The onset of narcosis symptoms is expected around 30 metres (405 kPa) when breathing air. The principal hazard of gas narcosis is euphoria, overconfidence, and loss of judgment.

Painting the brain: multiplexed tissue labelling of human brain tissue to facilitate discoveries in neuroanatomy

Multiplex labelling technology that generates spatial maps of large numbers of proteins can facilitate discoveries in neuroanatomy and the study of neurodegenerative diseases.
