Background

As Lead Software Engineer for support applications, Adam oversees a small team of software engineers tasked with writing and/or maintaining a broad array of applications that have direct impact on the OLCF’s end-user community. In practice, this includes the center’s customer relationship management (CRM) software, business intelligence (BI) systems, user-facing web applications and portals, scientific software package management tools, and user-facing Linux container solutions.

Adam brings a diverse range of professional experience, gathered from both industry and academia, to the OLCF. In previous roles, he has written production-level finite element analysis code in C++ and Fortran, “barn-raised” large university-run commodity clusters, and maintained the HPC software stack on a number of top500.org systems. He spends most of his time these days writing code in Ruby, Python, and Go.
