Sept. 18 — The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) has named Dr. Kevin D. Franklin to join its advisory board. Franklin is a veteran of the computational humanities, arts and social science (HASS) research community. He is the executive director of the Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts and Social Science (I-CHASS), a senior research scientist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), a research professor in Educational Policy, Organization and Leadership, and adjunct associate professor in African American Studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
Franklin’s work seeks to understand and promote the blending of humanities, arts, social science and advanced computing research and education. He has directed a number of cutting-edge projects in HASS Cyberinfrastructure and has worked to build and support interdisciplinary research teams that address issues across these disciplines. Franklin is a co-founder of the Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC) and the Advanced Research and Technology Collaboratory for the Americas (ARTCA). He also has served as a Deputy Director at the University of California San Diego Supercomputer Center and Executive Director of the University of California Humanities Research Institute. HPCwire named Franklin as one of the Top 12 People to Watch in high-performance computing in 2010.
XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE integrates these resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them. The five-year, $121 million project is supported by the National Science Foundation.
