I remember some people doing computational cosmology/astrophysics at Stony Brook. Given that the department is quite large, I am sure there are more people doing computational physics in other areas, just search in the their website. As for high energy physics, are you interested in theory or experiment? If it is the former, prepare yourself to work your ass off, because everyone at the open house told us that it is really hard to be accepted as a student at the Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics; they say it is extremely competitive. If you are interested in experiment, I am pretty sure they participate in all major collaborations in the field. Also, keep in mind that Stony Brook is one of the top places for nuclear physics, both in theory and experiment, and that lately there is some overlap with high energy physics (in the sense that nuclear theorists are using string theory techniques, for example). Just wanted to mention that in case you might be interested.
