Adam is a member of the climate and the data analytics teams in ICHEC.
HPC is essential for weather/climate forecasting, due to the complexity of the physics. The climate team is working to produce higher resolution, more accurate forecasts. Alongside this were we are speeding up the code by using novel technologies and improving IO performance.
Adam together with analytics team provides courses in R and statistical techniques. Also we provide data analytics support other ICHEC projects. Our work with the BDI has enabled the realisation of a near-pateint device to montior cardiovascular risk.
Adam's BSc was in theoretical physics with a DPhil in crystallographic phasing methods. After some years in Italy and the UK, as a postdoctoral researcher, he gained industry experience as a senior programmer with a crystallographic software suite in the UK (CCP4), before moving into systems administration and assistance of the Electron Microscopy Group of the MRC Virology Unit in Glasgow, Scotland. In Ireland, Adam has been working with the Department of Mathematics in Maynooth teaching undergraduate level mathematics.
