ORG Ohio Supercomputer Center Title BIO OSC Interim Co-Executive Director and Director of the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science Steven I. Gordon, Ph.D. is Interim Co-Executive Director for the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), as well as director of the Center's Ralph Regula School of Computational Science. Gordon is the founding director of the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science. With funding from the Ohio Board of Regents and several National Science Foundation grants, the School has built inter-disciplinary, inter-institutional programs for computational science education. Currently fourteen Ohio institutions share an undergraduate minor program in computational science that started in 2007. An associates degree program and a certificate program begins in 2009. Gordon has also played a significant role in several programs in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics education for high school and middle school students. Those include the Summer Engineering STEM Academy and the Young Women?s Summer Institute. As Senior Director of Client support, he oversees training programs for OSC users and has led workshops for undergraduate faculty and graduate students both at OSC and as part of the SC08 and SC09 education program. In 1997-2003, Gordon also served as Deputy Director of OSC. As a professor of City and Regional Planning at The Ohio State University, Gordon teaches courses in geographic information systems and environmental modeling and undertakes research in watershed modeling and management. Gordon's research applies models of storm water runoff and water quality to the analysis of watershed management and the applications of communications technology to distance education. He has authored two books and a number of refereed publications in this area. Gordon graduated cum laude from State University of New York at Buffalo with a bachelor's degree in geography. He earned his master's and doctorate degrees from Columbia University in geography with a specialization in environmental systems.
