Doug Kothe has been named associate laboratory director for the Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, effective June 6.

“It’s truly an honor and a privilege. I can’t think of a better job to have and a better place to have it,” Kothe said. “I’m really excited to join the best computing organization in the world, and CCSD is the best thanks to Jeff Nichols who has had an incredible run in leading the directorate with vision, passion and commitment to be the best. And he has certainly delivered. Jeff is a friend, mentor and a role model for effective leadership with a can-do attitude.”
