PSC Director Shawn Brown has been appointed vice chancellor for research computing at the University of Pittsburgh.

Make no mistake: Brown remains director of PSC. He’s ours, we’re keeping him.

Brown’s new appointment continues PSC’s strengthening relations with both Pitt and CMU, of which PSC is a joint center. Having responsibility for Pitt’s research computing mission, Brown will provide strategic direction on next-generation computing and data resources, including hardware and software, from desktops to supercomputers and both campus and cloud platforms. A particular focus will be partnership opportunities with PSC and with CMU, and how Pitt can play the strongest role in the overall regional computing ecosystem.
