Sharon Broude Geva is Director of Advanced Research Computing (ARC) in the Office of Research (UMOR) at the University of Michigan (U-M). ARC enables and catalyzes computational research at the university through the support of programmatic initiatives, multidisciplinary collaboration, instruction, and research computing resources and services. ARC is home to a consulting and training unit, Consulting for Statistics, Computing, and Analytics Research (CSCAR), a research technology services unit (ARC-TS) and two affiliated programmatic institutes: the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering (MICDE), and the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS).
The four units provide a complete and cohesive ecosystem for advanced research computing at U-M, covering HPC and Data Science clusters; storage; consulting, facilitation, and expertise for research projects using advanced computing resources; training and workshops; academic seminar series and symposia for computational science and data science; Graduate certificates and degrees; and more. As ARC Director, Sharon works across the four units to coordinate activities and mission, formulate initiatives, set policy and strategy with the individual units’ leadership, and maintain the consolidated systems and relationships with U-M faculty and administration.
Sharon currently serves as Chair of The Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC), is a Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) conference series Steering Committee member, co-chairs the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA)‘s Research Computing Peer Group, and is on the Executive Boards of Women in HPC (WHPC) and the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC). She serves on national and international task forces, organizing committees, and review panels.
She received her PhD in Computational Physical Chemistry and her BSc in Computer Science and in Chemistry from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Utah.
