CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - A top official from a Russian research university will be the new director of the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

The University of Illinois said Monday that H. Edward Seidel will be the new NCSA director.

Seidel has been a senior vice president at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology in Moscow. The institute is a relatively new private university opened in a partnership between the Russian government and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Seidel replaces Thom Dunning who retired this year.

Seidel's resume includes work at the National Science Foundation and the University of Illinois. He held several positions at the U of I in the 1990s including a senior researcher position at NCSA.

He has a Ph.D. from Yale in relativistic astrophysics.

A tragic accident in Rolla over the weekend as a mother accidentally ran over her daughter on Sunday morning.

The Rolla Police say the 24-year-old mother was backing her van out of parking space, did not see her two-year-old daughter, and hit her. The toddler was taken to the hospital where she died.

An investigation into the accident continues.

 

A Steelville man faces charges for allegedly shooting and killing a man during an argument.

Witnesses say James Crocker was arguing with Paul Dart Jr over whether Dart was standing on private or public property. The argument escalated and that is when police say Crocker fired several shots at Dart--one bullet hit him in the head. Dart was pronounced dead just a short time later.

Crocker faces second-degree murder charges and is held on a $650,000 bond.
