Shawn McKee (Ph.D., UM 1991) is a high-energy astrophysicist and research scientist at the University of Michigan. He is currently a member of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. His work has been central to advancing computing technology to address the simulation and data analysis requirements of ATLAS. ATLAS, with its multi-Petabyte per year data flow, represents a significant challenge for even the existing computing infrastructure of 2009. Since 2006, Shawn has been the Director of the ATLAS Great Lakes Tier-2 (AGLT2) computing center, located at the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, one of five such centers in the US providing computing resources to support ATLAS simulation and data analysis.  In 2001, he was appointed Network Project Manager for US ATLAS to plan for and develop the necessary network environment to support the US ATLAS computing model. He is co-chair of the High-Energy and Nuclear Physics (HENP) Internet2 Working Group, which is addressing similar problems in the context of all of high-energy and nuclear physics experiments.
