Nicholas Nystrom named PSC Chief Scientist


Nicholas Nystrom will serve as principal scientific and technical adviser to the PSC Director.
14 Mar 2019 Pittsburgh - Nicholas Nystrom has been named chief scientist of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC). In this newly created position, Nicholas Nystrom will serve as the principal scientific and technical adviser to the PSC's director and will be the primary authority for the technical content of the centre's science and technology portfolio. He will coordinate all research proposals and ensure the PSC's continued collaboration with key partners.

Nicholas Nystrom will continue to serve as principal investigator on critical research projects including the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Bridges and the infrastructure component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded Human Biomolecular Atlas Programme (HuBMAP) Integration, Visualization, and Engagement (HIVE) Collaboratory.

Nicholas Nystrom joined PSC in 1992 as scientific programmer. He most recently served as interim director and senior research director. He has held the position of research physicist at Carnegie Mellon University since 2004. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1992 from the University of Pittsburgh.

PSC is a joint effort between Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. Established in 1986, the PSC provides university, government and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data storage available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research. PSC advances the state of the art in high-performance computing, communications and data analytics and offers a flexible environment for solving the largest and most challenging problems in computational science.
