Jonathon has been involved with academic HPC since 2006, having served previously at Argonne National Laboratory, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He carries general experience in Linux system administration and IBM's parallel filesystem “GPFS,” and specializes in system design and automation. Jonathon received his B.S. in Computer Science at Olivet Nazarene University.
John has been working in HPC as a system administrator since 2010, coming most recently from Argonne National Lab. There he worked with the Laboratory Computing Resource Center to build and support the lab's mid range computing resources across three computational clusters and provided guidance for the design of new clusters and workflows. John works to insure the reliability of the computing resources and maintain and improve current infrastructure that supports Research Computing.
Tim Dunn grew up in Niwot, Co. He is working on multiple majors in Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB), Applied Math, Computer Science and Biochemistry as well as a minor in Atmospheric and Oceanic sciences. All this points to his love of high performance scientific computing and most especially scientific visualization. He has spent the past decade plus working in the Computer Graphics industry as a Visual Effects TD where he still loves to spend his free time working on TV shows and Movies as well as developing new software technologies and training the next generation of amazing artists.
HPC Specialist. Nick has been involved in HPC since 2005, and he specializes in parallel algorithm development and optimization. In addition to providing user support and consulting services, he studies the generation of solar magnetism through the use of parallel, 3-D MHD simulations. Nick received a Ph.D. from the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado.
Research Computing Consultant. Joel's previous position was Director of Computing and Electronics at the CU/NIST research institute JILA. Possessing a keen interest in science, computing and networks, Joel has spent his entire professional career at the University of Colorado in Boulder in computing and network support roles, including deploying high performance computing and networking to researchers at JILA when HPC was still a young field. The Research Computing group presents Joel with the exciting opportunity to help deliver a broad range of HPC resources to the entire CU community and worldwide collaborators.
Shelley is the Assistant Director of Research Data and Training. Her roles include training researchers to use our systems more effectively, and helping scientists optimize their research through effective data management skills. She is also the Director of Education and Training in the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS), a collaborative effort with the CU Libraries. Shelley's experience is in data management and quality control. She earned her PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences in Spring 2014.
Bruce has 25 years of high-performance scientific computing experience including independent and collaborative research, design and implementation of technical support programs, technical marketing, and software design. Technical interests include environmental modeling, parallel numerical methods, large-scale mathematical optimization, and large-scale distributed applications. Bruce has a PhD from Colorado State University in Water Resources Engineering.
