NEWARK, NJ, April 28, 2022Edge’s Dr. Forough Ghahramani, Associate Vice President for Research, Innovation, and Sponsored Programs, will discuss available resources for research at under-resourced academic institutions during a session at Connecticut Education Network’s (CEN) 9th Annual Member Conference

Taking place May 5, 2022 at the Connecticut Convention Center, Dr. Ghahramani’s presentation titled Broadening the Reach for Access to Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Resources, will highlight the fact that many smaller, mid-sized and under-resourced campuses, including MSIs, HSIs, HBCUs and EPSCoR institutions, have compelling science research and education activities along with an awareness of the benefits associated with better access to cyberinfrastructure (CI) resources. Notes Dr. Ghahramani, “These schools can benefit greatly from resources and expertise to augment their in-house efforts.”

Dr. Ghahramani further explains, “As a member of the Ecosystem for Research Networking (ERN) Broadening the Reach (BTR) working group, I’ve been deeply involved to address these issues by focusing on learning directly from the under-resourced academic institutions in the region on how best to support them for research collaboration and advanced computing requirements. I look forward to sharing some of these insights at the CEN Conference.” 

CEN’s Member Conference will be hosted in-person with over 500 attendees and industry leaders participating in training, collaboration, education, and networking.
