Supercomputing Pro Jay Boisseau Is “One to Watch”

Jay Boisseau has been called a “Category 5 hurricane,” and a “force of nature.” So is it any surprise that Boisseau, director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center, has added another accolade to his already-stellar C.V.?

Supercomputing website HPCWire has named Boisseau, MA ’90, PhD ’96, Life Member, one of its People to Watch in 2013.

“Under his leadership the center has grown into one of the leading advanced computing centers in the world,” HPCWire writes. “Boisseau is recognized as a leader in providing world-class HPC systems and cyber-infrastructure for the U.S. computational science community.”

Researchers flock from around the globe to use the Texas Advanced Computing Center’s high-powered resources, which have brought in more than $200 million to UT in the last decade. The center has long been one of UT’s best-kept secrets—though with news like this, it may not be so secret for much longer.

“A lot of people know Austin as a high-tech hub, but what’s less known is that Austin is becoming a supercomputing capital of the world,” Boisseau told the Alcalde in 2011.
