She will attend a series of workshops during fall semester. from MSU’s Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (ICER), along with hands-on support as they develop research projects using cloud-based computing.

“The fellows should be thought of as early adopters of cloud computing for academic research who will push the boundaries of the traditional roles of high-performance computing,” said Mahmoud Parvizi of ICER. “They are the frontline researchers and future principal investigators from diverse academic fields who will most certainly influence the course of important research initiatives that leverage ever-evolving computational tools to great effect.”

Frans is interested are in how human activities affect natural systems through interactions at different scales. As a Cloud Computing Fellow, Frans plans to use cloud computing to model and assess relationships between sustainable development and biodiversity. 

She is in the department of fisheries and wildlife and advised by core faculty member Jianguo Liu.

In spring 2022, she will present her project alongside 16 other fellows at a symposium hosted by ICER.
