LSU has officially announced they have named Dr. Honggao Liu its new Director for High Performance Computing. Liu has been with LSU for over eleven years, six of which were spent doing research in the HPC group. He holds several degrees in chemical engineering, including a PhD from LSU.
I am excited by the prospects of Honggao’s leadership of this critical area as Director of HPC, and believe strongly that the University community at large will benefit from his focus on customer service and proven expertise in the field,” said Brian Voss, LSU Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and the University’s Chief Information Officer.
LSU’s HPC department operates as a partnership between the Center for Computation and Technology [CCT] and LSU Information Technology Services [ITS].
As our campus researchers develop initiatives for the coming semester, we want them to know that HPC is always available as a resource for them and their academic departments,” Liu said. “Our HPC staff can assist with projects across all disciplines, and we have consultants available in Frey and Middleton Library to meet with our faculty, staff and students about specific questions they may have. In the coming semester, I hope to meet with more researchers on campus and get them more information about how we can meet their needs.”
