PSC names new executive director

David Moses has joined the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) as executive director.

Moses replaced Beverly Clayton, who retired in March.

Moses will manage PSC's daily internal operations, overseeing a scientific and technological staff of about 75 people.

Moses received his Ph.D. in nuclear chemistry from Carnegie Mellon in 1986. While he was director of computing facilities in the chemistry department, he helped co-found Gaussian, which makes computational chemistry software. In 1990, Moses became Gaussian's vice president and chief operating officer, responsible for staff management, contracting and daily operations. In 2002, Moses received an honorary doctorate from West Virginia University for his work in the scientific software industry.

When Gaussian consolidated its operations in Connecticut in 2004, Moses rejoined Carnegie Mellon in the associate provost's office, where he worked with all levels of sponsored research infrastructure, negotiating and managing contracts with government and industrial sponsors and academic collaborators. He was also instrumental in developing and managing the university’s export compliance policy.
