OARnet Posts

Andrea Carrier

An OARnet business relationship manager is a jack-of-all-trades. Just ask one of the newest members of that team, Andrea Carrier.

In our newest “Meet the Staff” post, Carrier talks about what brought her to OARnet, what her job entails, and what skills make for a good business relationship manager.  We also find out about the sport she excelled in growing up, and how she balances mom life with a full-time job.

If you hadn’t noticed, there has been a slew of articles recently recognizing Columbus, central Ohio, and the state in general as an emerging technology ecosystem. What’s behind this outpouring of tech respect, you may wonder? Well, it’s a combination of some attributes that have been around for quite some time (very few hurricanes and earthquakes, geographic centrality, low cost of living, etc.) and a handful that are more recently attributed to the region.

 

Hood

Many who aren’t familiar with OARnet are blown away by what it does, and provides Ohioans, once they fully digest the full scope of the organization. Such was the case for Julie Hood.

Hood joined the OARnet team as its program coordinator in July 2017, she was drawn to the organization because she was interested in the challenge of working in an industry that was new to her.

Hood recently spoke with OARnet about her favorite parts of her job, a performance she gave with gold medalist and figure skating personality Scott Hamilton, how she enjoys spending her free time, and which famous person from history she would most want to have dinner with.

The National Science Foundation’s Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) program provides funding for campus-level networking improvements and resources for science applications and distributed research projects. The program emphasizes learning and workforce development (LWD) in cyberinfrastructure.

Proposals for these awards are due Jan. 30, 2018. I’ve put together some general guidelines and helpful tips for OARnet members who may be interested in applying for the CC* 18-508 funds. OARnet might be able to help bolster your proposal and your network.
