IACS Advisory Board


The IACS advisory board consists of faculty, researchers, and professionals committed to training the next generation of computational scientists by advancing the study of computational science and engineering at Harvard. As IACS continues to assess and refine the academic programs and the CSE curriculum, these experts provide valuable guidance based on their work at the forefront of this fast-growing field or their engagement in using and promoting computational tools in various path-breaking applications. IACS is committed to responding to the needs of industry and other stakeholders as we evaluate and refine the program to stay in step with workforce needs and changing directions in the field.
