Benjamin Mayer is a member of the Earth Systems Modeling Group in the Climate Change Science Institute at ORNL. His work is interfacing with Scientists and Systems people to discover opportunities for easier and faster operations and to implement these discoveries. The focus of this work is on reducing total time to solution as well as cost of operations. This is accomplished by building and implementing hardened tool chains to support an optimized process and data flow.
Primarily, Benjamin is funded by the DOE ACME Earth System Model project with additional funding being provided by Panorama, a predictive modeling of workflows project. These projects combine well together with the combination of workflow, modeling and optimization as well as
Benjamin received his Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota with work in creation of data mining algorithms for medical and network intrusion detection, parallel computing (language design, implementation and instruction), as well as databases. He joined ORNL in 2011.
