David Skinner Named NERSC Strategic Partnerships Lead

This month, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) created a new position — Strategic Partnerships Lead, to identify new science communities that can benefit from NERSC resources. David Skinner, former head of NERSC’s Outreach Software and Programming Group, has been selected to fill the role. In his new post, Skinner will also act as a liaison between NERSC and projects that span many Berkeley Lab divisions. He will also head a new industrial partnerships initiative and look for opportunities to collaborate with the Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) and Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division.
