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.
Dionysios Antonopoulos is a microbiologist studying how communities of microorganisms live and thrive together in a variety of environments. Currently, he is particularly interested in understanding how microbial communities maintain their stability in different environments. As a result, his research team is actively involved in creating new approaches for minimizing the complexity of natural microbial communities so that they can be studied in the laboratory.
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.
Salman Habib is the Director of Argonne’s Computational Science (CPS) Division, leading the overall day-to-day management, strategic direction, growth, and vision into both the near and long-term future. He holds a joint position in Argonne’s Physical Sciences and Engineering (PSE) Directorate, the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago, and the Northwestern Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering (NAISE). He also leads the ExaSky effort within the U.S. Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project. Salman’s interests cover a broad span of research, ranging from quantum field theory and quantum information to the formation of cosmological structure. He is particularly interested in innovative uses of high performance and data-intensive computing in solving scientific problems.
Cristina Negri is the Director of the Environmental Science (EVS) Division. As the Director of a scientific Division of 70+ staff, her current interests are in leading the development and execution of its strategic programmatic direction inclusive of a diverse research portfolio in environmental sciences.
