To facilitate collaboration with other researchers via the internet, I can
offer a common platform described on which I am Principal Investigator (PI) of
a National Science Foundation (NSF.gov) Extreme Science and Engineering
Discovery Environment (XSEDE.org) supercomputer-resource grant, based on ideas
as presented in a paper generated by the project

A paper in press is
This grant is for use of these resources for applications of computational physics as used in the above references, based on some projects related to those I have worked on previously. Work performed under an initial grant spanning 20 Feb 2013 - 19 Aug 2014 passed peer review for a second research grant spanning 1 Jul 2014 - 30 Jun 2015. On 20 Nov 2014 a request to double the current resources passed another round of review and was granted.
A renewal research grant will be submitted in the first week of Apr 2015. A lot of the work required is sifting through new databases and modifying existing code accordingly.
Note that this is a platform that gives opportunities in research collaboration for volunteers. Depending on your contributions, your rewards may be learning, producing new algorithms, acknowledgements, co-authorship, personal references that may help your career, etc.
If you are interested in collaborating on my XSEDE project, below are the steps I have volunteers use.
In all correspondence, please provide links instead of attachments whenever possible. If you cannot share individual files from Google Drive, Skydrive, Dropbox, etc., there are plenty of other similar free services.
Contact me with an email to email@example.com so we can discuss whether you and the project would benefit from your membership. If this is agreed upon, then continue to the next steps.
(1) Set up your own account on http://www.xsede.org . Also, see https://www.xsede.org/using-xsede#step2 to set up a Portal Account. This all is is pretty straightforward. It will take a day or two until your registration is in the XSEDE system. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me the user name and email address you used to register.
(2) When I see your registered name and email in XSEDE, I can add you as a user to this project on xsede.org, which can take over a day for XSEDE to process. Currently we have accounts at different XSEDE sites. I will send you an email when this step is complete.
(3) I do due diligence on the activity in this group regularly. If you have not make any contact with me, or have not done any work on any of our xsede projects within the past month, I'll remove you from this xsede project. This will not affect your registration on xsede.org and you still can benefit from that.
I have to do this to be able to monitor the progress of these projects, and to know who to depend on for future progress. If you find that you have been removed, and feel I made an error in doing so, please just contact me by sending an email to email@example.com so that I can consider putting you back into the project.
