AWMC Seminar Program: Dr David C Green, Reseach Computing Centre, UQ

How can the Research Computing Centre assist Engineering Research?
Abstract: The RCC was established in 2011 and provides coordinated management and support of The University of Queensland’s sustained and substantial investment in eResearch. The RCC is an innovative and multidisciplinary environment that supports research collaboration and facilitates discovery through advanced computation, data analysis and other digital research tools. We will explore some of these research tools and their applications and there will be ample opportunity during, and after the session, to discuss how the RCC can help with your specific research needs.
Bio: David majored in physics and applied mathematics at UQ and his first real science job was in environmental modelling for the Queensland Electricity Commission. David completed a PhD at the University of Sydney on electrochromic switchable window coatings for buildings. He feels that his choice of thesis topic has been vindicated since buying a car with an auto-dimming rear vision mirror and learning that the Boeing 787 Dreamliners have switchable windows instead of shutter blinds. He worked as an academic in the Applied Physics and Computer Systems departments at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) for almost 15 years. His commitment to fostering student learning was recognized in various forums, such as a UTS Teaching Excellence Award in 1997, and a Computer Systems Department Teaching Award in 2003. David career-changed into research computing support roles and joined The University of Queensland as HPC Manager within ITS in 2007. He has long been using computers to "figure stuff out" and enjoys working with researchers to help them do the same. He has been Deputy Director of the RCC since its establishment in 2011.
