Manish Parashar is Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey University. He is also the founding Director of the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2), the Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center (CAC) NSF IUCRC at Rutgers (CAC@Rutgers) and the The Applied Software Systems Laboratory (TASSL), Full Member (Clinical Investigations and Precision Therapeutics Program) of theRutgers Cancer Institute of New Jeresy, and is Associate Director of the Rutgers Center for Information Assurance (RUCIA). He is currenty serving as the Interim Associate Vice President of Research Computing and (with Prof. H. Berman) overseeing the establishment of the Rutgers Office of Advanced Research Computing (OARC). He also has a Joint Faculty Appointment with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Between 2009 -- 2011, he served as Program Director in the Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI) at the National Science Foundation (NSF), where he managed an approximately $150 Million research portfolio in the areas of software sustainability, computational and data-enabled science and engineering and cloud computing. At NSF, he established and led the crosscuttingSoftware Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) program, the CI TraCS Computational Science Fellowship programs, was involved in establishing the Computing in the Cloud (CiC) program, and worked on the NSF-wideCyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21) initiative. His research interests are in the broad area of Parallel and Distributed Computing with a focus on Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering.
Manish has held a visiting position at the eScience Institute at Edinburgh, UK (2009-2010), a joint research appointment with the Center for Subsurface Modeling, The University of Texas at Austin (1996-2006), and a visiting position at the Laboratoire d'InfoRmatique en Images et Systemes d'information (LIRIS), Lyon France. He has also been a visiting fellow at the Department of Computer Science and DOE ASCI/ASAP Center, California Institute of Technology (2000-2001), at the DOE ASCI/ASAP FLASH Center, University of Chicago (1998), and at the Max-Plank Institute in Potsdam, Germany (1994-1998).
Manish received a 2013 R & D 100 Award (with ORNL and GATech), IBM Faculty Awards in 2008 and 2010, the Tewkesbury Fellowship from University of Melbourne, Australia (2006), the Rutgers Board of Trustees Award for Excellence in Research (The Award) (2004-2005), the NSF CAREER Award (1999), TICAM (now ICES) (University of Texas at Austin) Distinguished Fellowship (1999-2001), and the Enrico Fermi Scholarship, Argonne National Laboratory (1996). He is a Fellow of AAAS, Fellow of IEEE / IEEE Computer Society , and ACM Distinguished Scientist.
Manish serves on the editorial boards and organizing committees of a large number of journals and international conferences and workshops. He has also served as a panelist for NSF, DoE and other national and international funding agencies, and regularly reviews technical articles for journals and conferences. At Rutgers, he service in leadership roles on various, University, School and Department level committees and is actively involved in curriculum development, specially in the area of applied parallel and distributed computing and computational and data-intensive computing.
Manish has co-authored a large number technical publications including paper in international journals and conferences, invited papers and presentations and book chapters (Parashar@GoogleScholar). He has also co-authored/edited books, conference proceedings and journal special issues and has presented large number of keynotes and distinguished seminars. He has developed and deployed several software systems that are widely used, including CometCloud, and DataSpaces/DIMES/DART.
