William Arndt is a post doctoral software developer at NERSC. His focus is the targeted optimization of bioinformatics applications for use on HPC resources supported by NERSC. He is partially funded by the Joint Genome Institute and focuses  on improving software heavily used by JGI researchers.

Before coming to NERSC, Bill worked as a developer for the HMMER web service, optimizing database infrastructure used to provide HMMER search results. He received his PhD from the University of South Carolina in 2011 where his research focused on algorithms which reveal the phylogenetic implications of genome rearrangement events.
