Nick Tyler is a NEASP for Data postdoc working 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 a bachelor's degree in physics from Canisius College in 2008. While at Canisius and UofSC he was a member of the CLAS collaboration at Jefferson Lab, working on experimental nuclear physics and hadron spectroscopy. During his 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 hardon cross-sections.
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.
