Dr. Michael Levine is Professor of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University, specializing in theoretical particle physics. He is also a founder and Co-Scientific Director of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC). He is the author of numerous papers in computational, theoretical, and particle physics. His physics research over the last few years has been in high order quantum electrodynamics. His earlier work in Physics includes a series of papers applying symbolic computation methods and computational systems devised by him, to fundamental problems in electrodynamics done in collaboration with Professor Ralph Roskies. Professor Levine initiated Carnegie Mellon's degree program in Computational Physics and continues to teach courses in that program. In 1984, together with Ralph Roskies and James Kasdorf of Westinghouse Electric Company, he wrote the proposal to the National Science Foundation for what was eventually to become the PSC. As Scientific Director at PSC, he continues to oversee operations, plan its future course, and concern himself with its scientific impact. He also serves as the Associate Provost for Scientific Computing for Carnegie Mellon University.
