Jennifer M. Schopf, PhD
Director of International Networks

In 2013, Dr. Schopf joined the Indiana University networking team where she now oversees several NSF-funded networking awards, including America Connects to Europe (ACE), TransPac, and Networks for European, American, and African Research (NEAAR), all of which support network infrastructure for international collaborations. She also leads the NetSage collaboration, which provides measurement and monitoring for NSF-funded international circuits. As part of all these projects, there is an emphasis on the need to understand the end-user needs to enable collaborations and science engagement. Prior to IU, she was an NSF program officer and helped to develop pragmatic networking solicitations, as well as supporting several data and cyberinfrastructure solicitations.

In addition to her experience at NSF, Schopf was a member of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s Ocean Informatics team, a senior member of the Globus distributed software team, and worked at the UK National eScience Center in Edinburgh, Scotland. She has co-edited a book, co-authored over 50 refereed papers, and given over 100 invited talks. She received her BA in Mathematics and Computer Science (with general and departmental honors) from Vassar College and her MS and PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from UC San Diego, where she was a student of Dr. Francine Berman.
