XLOOP Organization

Workshop Chairs:

Justin M. Wozniak (Argonne National Laboratory)
leads the development of the Swift/T workflow system. He won an R&D 100 award in 2018 and is a Gordon Bell finalist in 2020. He coupled experimental and computing resources at the Advanced Photon Source and the Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) and helped set a data collection record at CHESS. He received a PhD in Computer Science & Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 2008.
Nicholas Schwarz (Argonne National Laboratory)
leads the scientific software and data management effort at the Advanced Photon Source x-ray user facility. His research interests focus on applying state-of-the-art computational techniques to solve scientific domain problems. At the Advanced Photon Source, Nicholas led the development of a facility-wide data management system. He co-authored the common data policy currently being adopted by US-based x-ray synchrotron and free electron laser facilities. He received MS and BS degrees in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2007 and 2003, respectively.

Workshop Steering Committee:

Debbie Bard (National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center)
leads the Data Science Engagement Group at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Berkeley National Lab. A native of the UK, her career spans research in particle physics, cosmology and computing on both sides of the Atlantic. She obtained her PhD at Edinburgh University, and worked at Imperial College London and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory before joining NERSC, where her group supports supercomputing for experimental science. Her research focuses on data-intensive computing and machine learning at scale.
Robert Clay (Sandia National Laboratory)
Sudharshan Vazhkudai (Oak Ridge National Laboratory)
Venkatram Vishwanath (Argonne National Laboratory)
leads the Data Science group at the Argonne leadership computing facility (ALCF). His current focus is on algorithms, system software, and workflows to facilitate data-centric applications on supercomputing systems. His interests include scientific applications, supercomputing architectures, parallel algorithms and runtimes, scalable analytics and collaborative workspaces. He has received best papers awards at venues including HPDC and LDAV, and a Gordon Bell finalist. Vishwanath received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2009.
