Biographical Sketch

Nick Tyler is a Scientific Data Architect in the Data and AI Services group at NERSC, working primarily on supporting large data transfer tools, and cross facility workflows. Nick has helped many projects at NERSC ranging from computational biology, nuclear physics, high energy physics, and nuclear fusion as they look to create cross facility workflows and to harness the Superfacility API. As a NESAP Postdoc Nick worked with the Joint Genome Institute at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab on their workflow management system JAWS (JGI Analysis Workflow Service). Nick received his PhD in experimental nuclear physics from the University of South Carolina in 2021, and was a member of the CLAS collaboration at Jefferson Lab, working on experimental nuclear physics and hadron spectroscopy. During his PhD research, Nick utilized many computing facilities and approaches, from High Throughput Computing to perform particle detector simulations using the Open Science Grid and High Performance Computing resources at the UofSC and Jefferson Lab to process and combine the experimental data with simulation results to calculate the final hadron cross-sections.

Research Interests

Engaging with user facilities to integrate their workflows with NERSC, learning and using new workflow management tools, and problem solving the complexities of multi-site workflows.
