Submitted by Daniel Andresen

Daniel Andresen, associate professor in computing and information sciences and director of the Institute for Computational Research in Engineering and Science, has been selected to the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, or XSEDE, Campus Champions Leadership Team. Andresen is one of six members from more than 200 campus champions across the U.S. He will serve a two-year term.

The Campus Champions program supports campus representatives as a local source of knowledge about high-performance and high-throughput computing and other digital services, opportunities and resources. This knowledge and assistance empowers campus researchers, educators and students to advance scientific discovery.

Through the Campus Champions program, the K-State has direct access to Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment and input to its staff, resource allocations for the use of your campus researchers and assistance in using those resources.
