CSE Speaker Series – LANL Server and Storage Support Team

On Friday, November 16, 2018, at 3:00 pm in Jones Annex 101 the Los Alamos National Labs Server and Storage Support Team will be here to discuss their implementation of a private cloud. From the early stages of trying to better use hardware to what has grown to a virtualize first mentality for much of LANL business computing.  We will also be discussing the hardware needed to meet the ever-increasing needs of our customers.

Other topics will include languages used in addressing custom build issues, types of workloads we have found virtualize well (and some that don’t) and an option we are looking at for a hybrid cloud approach.

The speakers will be three people from the Server and Storage Support Team.

Keith Morgan Team Leader with 23 years of IT experience.

Ryan Iverson Server and Storage Support Team member with 4 years on the team.

Kory Wegmeyer Server and Storage Support Team member with 1.5 years on the team.

CSE Speaker Series – Katheryn Perea

On Friday, November 9, 2018 at 3:00 pm in Jones Annex 101, Katheryn Perea will give a talk on “The Path Less Traveled: Bioinformatics”.



With the arrival of next generation sequencing came the explosion of one of the largest interdisciplinary fields to date – Bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is arguably one of the most influential fields in healthcare to date, and also plays a large role in Ecology as well as Forensic Science. Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry all play integral roles within the field, and there is a constant demand for people from these fields. There are a large amount of career opportunities in Bioinformatics in private industry, academia, and government. In a field this large there is a stress for individuals with interdisciplinary backgrounds and flexible interests. However, because this field is relatively new and highly volatile, many are unaware of what exactly it encompasses and where they may fit in it. In this talk I will broadly cover some of the subfields within Bioinformatics, pathways into a career in it, and some of the most recent developments within the field.

Abstract: With all of the news today about the endless breaches, accidental disclosures, attacks and more, how to we get ahead of the current trends? I will talk about a few of the experiences I’ve had in the field of cybersecurity, from the point of view of a researcher working for Idaho National Laboratory. I will also talk about what experiences in my school career have led to me being where I am, where cybersecurity trends tend to be going, and where I think we should go, moving forward.
