Andrew Grimshaw
Dr. Grimshaw’s career has been focused on the problem of enabling scientific discovery via computation. His earliest work was on simplifying parallel computing via language mechanisms and run-time systems. For the last twenty years he has been working on wide area distributed systems in support of science. The underlying theme of which is secure resources sharing between researchers and resource providers. Resources may include computational resources, data resources, application resources, etc. He has led several successful projects: Mentat, Legion, and Genesis II in academia and Avaki in the private sector. Today he is the PI on Genesis II, the co-architect for XSEDE (the NSF national CyberInfrastructure), and the president of the Open Grid Forum – the standards body for open distributed systems.
