CCT Associate Director Seung-Jong "Jay" Park

Seung-Jong “Jay” Park is the Associate Director for the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) and holds a Dr. Fred H. Fenn Memorial Professorship in the Division of Computer Science & Engineering. He received his PhD in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to that, he had received a B.S. degree in Computer Science at Korea University, Seoul, Korea and a M.S. degree in Computer Science from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), Teajon, Korea in 1993 and 1995, respectively. He joined the LSU faculty in 2004, holding a joint faculty position at CCT. His research interests include cyberinfrastructure for large-scale scientific and engineering researches using big data, deep learning technologies and computer networks.

He has performed interdisciplinary research related with (1) distributed computing ranging from cloud computing over high speed optical networks to mobile computing over wireless networks; and (2) computational Science performing large-scale molecular simulation over cloud computing and high speed networking. He has developed many protocols and cyberinfrastructures for NSF CC-NIE, NSF Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) projects, NSF Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) project and Office of Naval Research project, etc. In addition, he has designed data-/compute-intensive cloud computing frameworks over High Performance Computing (HPC) for Interdisciplinary bioinformatics research collaboration performing large-scale molecular simulation and gene sequencing over high performance computing and high speed networking.
