Suzy Tichenor is Director, Industrial Partnerships Program in the Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This program provides companies access to the Laboratory’s leadership-class HPC systems and modeling and simulation expertise to address complex, competitively important problems that exceed a firm’s internal capabilities. She is also co-Executive Director of the Exascale Computing Project Industry Council. Prior to Oak Ridge, she was Vice President of the Council on Competitiveness and directed their High Performance Computing Initiative. With support from the DOE’s Office of Science and NNSA, NSF, and DARPA, this initiative explored how high performance computing is a driver for economic productivity, and opportunities for public-private partnerships to expand HPC use across industry.
