Susan R. Atlas
Susan R. Atlas, PhD, is Research Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy and Director of the Center for Advanced Research Computing. She is co-Director of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource and an Associate Member of the Cancer Biology and Biotechnology Program at the UNM Cancer Center. Dr. Atlas leads computationally-intensive research programs in molecular biophysics and biophysics, and in machine learning/pattern recognition as applied to molecular classification for outcome prediction and novel subtype identification in cancer. Her theoretical work relates to the development of exchange-correlation energy density functionals for strongly-correlated electronic systems and charge-transfer embedded-atom functionals for molecular dynamics simulations of molecules and materials.

Chun-Yu Chan is the point of contact for the Center's wired & wireless network, Access Grid and mail server. He monitors and maintains all Windows/Mac desktop and laptop computers. In addition, he is the liaison for the Center's Resident Research Groups.
Brian Smith, along with Frank Gilfeather and John Sobolewski, was previously a co-PI on the original grant to run the Maui High Performance Computing Center. He is also a founder of the UNM Center for High Performance Computing. Brian retired from the University and the Computer Science Department several years ago, but continues to be active in the Center. He works in the general area of user support, helping to develop and debug codes on new systems. Most importantly, Brian provides a great deal of guidance and advice in setting the direciton for the Center.
