MSU 2021 Cloud Computing Fellowship
The MSU Cloud Computing Fellowship will begin with a series of group sessions that cover a wide range of topics relating to cloud computing. This first phase will include presentations on cloud concepts and workshops with hands-on exploration of cloud resources. During the second phase, fellows will work with Pat Bills from ADS and Dr. Mahmoud Parvizi from ICER to design cloud-based workflows applied to research projects supporting the broader efforts of their current research group.
This cohort consists of Michigan State University graduate students and postdoctoral research associates from a diverse set of backgrounds with a multitude of research interests.
“The fellows should be thought of as early adopters of cloud computing for academic research who will push the boundaries of the traditional roles of high-performance computing,” remarked Parvizi. “They are the frontline researchers and future principal investigators from diverse academic fields who will most certainly influence the course of important research initiatives that leverage ever-evolving computational tools to great effect.”
“Even if these researchers don't directly use cloud computing in their future careers,” Bills added, “understanding the nature of cloud computing and workflow thinking will be essential for success in the future world of research for almost all disciplines.”
The fellowship will culminate in an exciting symposium showcasing cloud computing implementations for each fellow’s unique project.
