Jeff Porter currently works to support computing needs of experimental High Energy Nuclear Physics (HENP) groups at NERSC and is leading a project to build an ALICE production grid facility in the US, co-located at NERSC/PDSF and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Jeff earned his PhD in Nuclear Physics from UC Davis and has been a member of several HENP experiments: DLS at LBNL, NA49 and ALICE at CERN and STAR at BNL's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). As the first liaison to NERSC for the Nuclear Science Division (NSD), Jeff supported initial operation of the NERSC PDSF cluster and participated in the HENP Grand Challenge Collaboration, developing data mining tools to access large data sets from the RHIC experiments. Jeff spent several years as Database and Deputy Computing Leader for the STAR experiment at BNL before returning to the west coast with the STAR group at the University of Washington. Jeff rejoined LBNL in 2006 to work with the Open Science Grid (OSG), operating testbeds for OSG and supporting deployment of grid middleware on NERSC systems. In 2009, he began to directly support ALICE and STAR computing operations at NERSC for the NSD.
