Faculty

  • Dr. Andrew Grimshaw
    Dr. Grimshaw is the founder, director, and leading visionary of the VCGC and is the XXX chair professor at the University of Virginia. He has been a pioneer in the fields of parallel, distributed and grid computing research for the past two decades as well as an evangelist in facilitating and promoting their use to improve the efficiency of scientific and other areas of research. He has written numerous articles, talks, and book chapters on grid computing and has served on various grid research related comittees.

Research Faculty

  • John Karpovich
    John is a research scientist with the UVa Department of Computer Science and the VCGC bringing 10 years of distributed and grid computing research to the team. He is responsible for carrying out grid research, working with collaborators to apply grid technology to their problems, and coordinating VCGC outreach efforts with outside research teams and sponsors.

  • Mark Morgan
    Mark Morgan is a research scientist with the UVa Department of Computer Science and the VCGC with more than 10 years of distributed and grid computing experience. In addition to basic grid research, he is responsible for leading several grid standards efforts, including serving as the current chair of the OGSA Byte I/O group, for developing reference implementations of grid standards and for developing and maintaining VCGC software toolkits.

Research Students

  • Howie Huang
    Howie is a PhD student at the University of Virginia doing basic research in grid systems. Howie currently is working with VCGC helping port, parallelize and tune collaborator codes, such as the ALLD simulation code used to model the adsorption and interactions of biomolecules in biomembranes and in hydrophobic chromatography systems.

  • Duane Merrill
    Duane is a PhD student at the University of Virginia in the area of grid systems. Duane is currently is developing and extending VCGC software toolkits, including a portal from the VCGC's Legion software to certain OGSA compliant Web Services.
