Abstract: The Cooperative Computing Lab works to create tools that allow researchers to utilize distributed resources. In this talk, I will highlight some common issues that come up in distributed computing and what approaches we use to solve them. I will talk more in depth about the current project of distributing MAKER (a bioinformatics pipeline) across Jetstream (cloud platform). Finally I will talk about life as graduate student and what that entails both day to day and as a whole.

Bio: Nick Hazekamp is a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame.  He is currently working in the Cooperative Computing Lab (CCL). The CCL designs software that enables collaborators to easily harness large scale distributed systems such as clusters, clouds, and grids. The CCL performs fundamental computer science research that enables new discoveries through computing in fields such as physics, chemistry, bioinformatics, biometrics, and data mining. Nick focuses on Bioinformatics tools looking at genome analysis.

Nick graduated in 2013 from Hope College with a BS in Computer Science and a BA in Chemistry.
