Strategic IT Partnerships, SIP

  • Being responsible for the strategic IT1-partnerships of MPI-M, I see it as my role to deal with strategic aspects of IT@MPI-M, especially in the context of HPC2 w.r.t. Earth System Modeling. As such, among other duties, I represent MPI-M in the in the user group (a DKRZ-login is required for this link) of the DKRZ.
  • Currently I am working as work package leader for the IS-ENES2 project.  I am one of the contact points for the European Network for Earth System Modelling (ENES), a member of the ENES Board and the ENES Task Force on HPC. Before I was the Project Manager for the COSMOS project and managing director of the EU-FP5 project PRISM. Please send any inquiries about all these activities directly to me.
  • I still am considered by many to be, preliminarily, the master user for the department Atmosphere in the Earth System. Some details can be found here.
