Rick Stevens is Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment and Life Sciences (CELS). He oversees a research program that connects computing to several areas of inquiry, and heads Argonne’s research initiatives for both exascale computing and computational biology.
Michael Papka is a data visualization expert whose current research interests involve the management, processing and analysis of scientific data. He is director of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, which houses an IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer.
Devin S. Hodge is the Chief Operations Officer (COO) for Argonne National Laboratory’s Computing, Environment, and Life Sciences (CELS) directorate.
As the COO, Hodge leads both long- and short-range strategic and tactical operations for CELS and is responsible for the development, implementation, and management of efficient, cost-effective, and high quality operational and administrative support activities for the directorate. He has more than two decades of leadership experience, and he is committed to supporting Argonne’s important mission.
As the Biosciences Division Director, Philippe Noirot is responsible for ensuring that the division’s staff, principal investigators and research groups all effectively communicate with each other and develop ideas and programs that are aligned with the U. S. Department of Energy/Biological and Environmental Research’s mission, with these efforts important for long-term funding and growth of the division. With his own work, Noirot has continued with a research focus on genetic engineering of undomesticated soil bacteria.
Dr. Paul Messina is the Director of Argonne’s Computational Science Division and Argonne Distinguished Fellow. During 2015-2017, he served as Project Director for the U.S. Department of Energy Exascale Computing Project. From 2008-2015, he served as Director of Science for the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility. In 2002-2004, he held the position of Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne and served as Adviser to the Director General at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). At Argonne, he held a number of positions from 1973-1987and was the founding Director of the Mathematics and Computer Science Division.
Dr. Ian Foster is the Director of Argonne’s Data Science and Learning Division, Argonne Senior Scientist and Distinguished Fellow and the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago. He was the Director of Argonne’s Computation Institute from 2006 to 2016.
Foster’s research contributions span high-performance computing, distributed systems, and data-driven discovery. He has published hundreds of scientific papers and eight books on these and other topics. Methods and software developed under his leadership underpin many large national and international cyberinfrastructures.
During her more than 20 years at Argonne, M. Cristina Negri conducted and directed laboratory to full-scale multidisciplinary projects developing technologies and concepts for environmental remediation and stewardship, including soil remediation and water treatment. She has researched sustainable technologies for urban environmental improvement.
Valerie Taylor joined Argonne in 2017 as the director of the Mathematics and Computer Science Division. She received her Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1991.
