Krell Institute


The Krell Institute is a 501(3)(c) corporation located in Ames, Iowa near Iowa State University. The organization was founded in 1997 in support of the US Department of Energy's Computational Science Graduate Fellowship program (CSGF), and has since grown to include a number of other US government contracts towards its mission of serving the science, technology, and education communities.

Krell is overseen by a four-member board of directors, including the company's President, Jim Corones. It is named for the Krell race in the 1956 science-fiction movie Forbidden Planet.
