 Dr. Sill has an extensive publication record in particle physics, nuclear physics, cosmic ray astrophysics and scientific computing topics. He participated in the experiments that discovered the top quark and of the Higgs boson at Fermilab and CERN, and helped to develop the scientific computing infrastructures that supported this work and later extended support to many other fields of science. He is currently an active member of the CMS and RD-52 experiments at CERN and of the IEEE, the Distributed Management Task Force, TeleManagement Forum, Open Grid Forum and other cloud standards working groups, and serves on several national and international standards roadmap committees. He also co-chairs the US National Institute of Standards and Technology’s “Standards Acceleration to Jumpstart Adoption of Cloud Computing” working group and also co-organizes the ongoing developer-oriented Cloud Interoperability Plugfest series in partnership with other open standards organizations and software projects. Dr. Sill has an extensive publication record in particle physics, nuclear physics, cosmic ray astrophysics and scientific computing topics.

-Dr. Sill has been involved with a wide variety of standards organizations ​in the course of his work, including working groups on grid security, middleware development,​ authentication and authorization,​ and remote collaboration,​ and was a founding charter member of The Americas Grid Policy Management Authority, the accrediting arm for North, South and Central America of the International Grid Trust Federation. He served as Secretary for TAGPMA for its initial two years and helped to develop its charter and mission, and remain an active TAGPMA member. He is an active volunteer in the community and enjoys personal hobbies in hiking, climbing, and a variety of high-adventure outdoor activities. ​+In the course of his work, Dr. Sill has been deeply ​involved with a wide variety of standards organizations,​ including working groups on grid security, middleware development,​ authentication and authorization,​ and remote collaboration,​ and was a founding charter member of The Americas Grid Policy Management Authority, the accrediting arm for North, South and Central America of the International Grid Trust Federation.

 His research interests are in high-end scientific data storage and processing, data security, identity management and authorisation. He has been deeply involved for several years in topics re;lated to federated identity management and single sign on for large-scale scientific organisations. Beyond these topics, he is interested in general in the development and application of scientific modeling and in scientific approaches to petascale computing. His research interests are in high-end scientific data storage and processing, data security, identity management and authorisation.
