"Computational Science and Engineering, Past, Present, and Future"
N. Radhakrishnan
Computational and Information Sciences Directorate, Army Research Labs, USA

Dr. N. Radhakrishnan joined the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in June 1999 as a Senior Executive Service (SES) member, as the Director of Computational and Information Sciences Directorate. The Directorate does research in Battlefield Communications, Data Fusion and Knowledge Management, Computational Science and Engineering, and Battlespace Environment and Atmospheric Science. Dr. Radha is also responsible for running a DOD High Performance Computing Center specializing in state-of-the-art scalable and vector computing hardware, scientific visualization, etc., and collaboration with researchers and academia in a number of application areas such as CFD, CSM, and CCM. He also funds the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) currently located at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Radha is also the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for ARL and in this capacity is responsible for providing the Information Technology infrastructure for ARL. Prior to taking the current position with ARL, Dr. Radha was the first Director of the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Waterways Experiment Station (WES). He was responsible for running one of the DoD High Performance Computing Centers, the Corps of Engineers Regional Processing Center, the DOD Tri-Services CADD/GIS Technology Center, the Corps of Engineers Software Engineering Center, and the Design Guidance Update Center. Dr. Radha earned his bachelor's degree in engineering from Madras University, Madras, India, and his master's in engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay. He earned his doctorate in engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.
