About the Project

Principal Investigator

Dr. Sudhakar Pamidighantam


The SEAGrid science gateway is led by Dr. Sudhakar Pamidighantam and powered by the NSF-funded SciGaP project. This gateway is an agile platform suitable for both research and teaching in science and engineering disciplines.

Bio: Dr. Pamidighantam is a senior member of the Science Gateways Research Center at Indiana University. Dr. Pamidighantam had been a senior research scientist at NCSA at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign supporting computational chemistry and science gateways development in support of molecular sciences faculty. He serves XSEDE organization as an ECSS consultant and conducts research in computational chemistry. See here for Dr. Pamidighantam’s Google Scholar profile.

Usage: SEAGrid has been in operation since 2005 and serves more than 600 scientists and students under 320 projects. Over this time, SEAGrid has supported and enabled more than 120 publications, 50 conference presentations, at least 13 graduate MS and Ph.D. theses. Since April 2015, SEAGrid has served close to 11M XD SUs to support almost 25,000 jobs.

Support: SEAGrid currently supported by NSF Grant #1339774. Previous NSF support includes awards The SEAGrid gateway is a production community cyberinfrastructure resource developed under the NSF Middleware Initiative (NMI: Deployment) grant and supported by additional advanced support through XSEDE ASTA and ECSS program activities. An OGCE [5] project funded by NSF enabled the SEAGrid gateway to adapt sustainable middleware.
