High-Performance and Data-Intensive Computing
San Francisco Bay Area

I am a specialist in data-intensive and high-performance computing currently working in the DNA sequencing industry. My formal educational background is in materials science, and I used to be a researcher in computational chemical physics where I studied problems related to the water/silica interfaces with molecular dynamics. More information about me is available on my CV and on LinkedIn.

This site contains various notes I've taken over the years with an emphasis on my time working at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). I no longer work at SDSC though, so for official help, I strongly recommend contacting . With that being said, I welcome any feedback about the contents of this site. My email address is listed above and at the bottom of every page, and I also am an active contributor in #hpc on freenode.

These are some pretty old notes (ca 2011 and earlier) that still might be interesting to some people.
