As Lead Developer for support applications, Adam is tasked with writing and maintaining both internal and user-facing applications that organize and disseminate much of the OLCF’s operational data. He leads efforts to improve the center’s customer relationship management (CRM) software, business intelligence (BI) solutions, and user-facing web sites and web applications.

Adam brings a diverse range of professional experience, gathered from both industry and academia, to the OLCF. In previous roles, he has written production engineering code in C++ and Fortran, “barn-raised” large university-run commodity clusters, and maintained the HPC software stack on a number of systems. He spends most of his time these days writing code in Ruby, Python, and Go.
