Ian Foster


I am a computer scientist with a predilection for building software systems (and, more recently, for deploying services) that solve problems in the sciences. I am a Distinguished Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory and a Professor at the University of Chicago. I am affiliated, in particular, with the Department of Computer Science, Mathematics and Computer Science Division, and Institute for Molecular Engineering.
