Henry Neeman, Brandon George, Scott Hill
Dr. Henry Neeman is the Director of the OU Supercomputing Center for
Education & Research, a visiting assistant
professor in OU's School of Computer Science and a research scientist
at the Center for Analysis & Prediction of Storms. He received his
B.S. in computer science and his B.A. in statistics with a minor in
mathematics from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1987,
his M.S. in CS from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in
1990 and his Ph.D. in CS from UIUC in 1996. Prior to coming to OU,
Dr. Neeman was a postdoctoral research associate at the National Center
for Supercomputing Applications, and before that served as a graduate
research assistant both at NCSA and at the Center for Supercomputing
Research & Development.
As the Director of the OU Supercomputing Center for
Education & Research,
Dr. Neeman leads
a unique partnership among the OU Department
of Information Technology, the OU Vice President for Research, and
23 academic departments from the Colleges of Arts & Sciences,
Business, Engineering, Geosciences and Medicine,
as well as several research centers, institutes and support organizations.
He is also a founding
member and de facto chair of the OU High Performance Computing group.
In addition to his own teaching and research, Dr. Neeman collaborates
with about 20 OU research teams per semester, applying High
Performance Computing techniques in fields such as numerical weather
prediction, bioinformatics and genomics, data mining, high energy
physics, cosmology, nanotechnology, petroleum reservoir management,
river basin modeling and engineering optimization. He serves as an
ad hoc advisor to student researchers in many of these fields.
Dr. Neeman also has taught a series of workshops titled "Supercomputing
in Plain English," directed at an audience of undergraduates, graduate
tudents, faculty and staff in not only computer science but also a
variety of physical science and engineering fields. Dr. Neeman's
research interests include high performance computing, scientific
computing, parallel and distributed computing, structured adaptive
mesh refinement, scientific visualization, Grid computing
and computer science education.
OSCER State of the Center Address 2003
The OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research
has undergone tremendous growth in the past year,
not only in size but also in scope and ambition.
In this talk,
we'll examine where we are, how we got here, and where we want to go.
