PSC staff are involved in collaborative research projects with scientists in many different fields.
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise.
PSC staff lead the XSEDE efforts in the areas of Systems & Software Engineering, Networking, Allocations, Advanced User Support Services, Novel and Innovative Projects, and Outreach.
