Arie Shoshani Retiring After 38 Years Managing Big and Bigger Data

June 5, 2014

For 38 years, Arie Shoshani has been ahead of the curve in managing scientific data, leading the lab's Scientific Data Management Group and serving as the lead for three SciDAC projects to develop new approaches for managing data. Over the course of his career, he has become an internationally recognized expert on creating, organizing and sharing scientific datasets. In August 2013, Shoshani's contributions to the scientific community were recognized with the Berkeley Lab Prize for Lifetime Scientific Achievement.
