CW3E Welcomes Patrick Mulrooney

November 19, 2019

Pat joined CW3E as a Domain Science Programmer in October 2019. He earned his B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and M.A.S. in Data Science from the University of California, San Diego. After graduating, Pat worked as a research programmer supporting biological sciences at UIUC. While working for the Energy Biosciences Institute at UIUC he helped develop BETYdb, a database that aggregates information on biofuel research. He then moved to a position as a storage engineer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications where he worked on a variety of projects including the Illinois Campus Cluster and Blue Waters Archive.

In 2014, Pat relocated to San Diego to take a position at San Diego Supercomputer Center as a senior storage engineer. At SDSC, he managed storage to meet the big data needs of researchers at UCSD. Most recently, Pat worked at Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine as a high-performance computing engineer. While at the institute, he built and maintained the analysis environment that ran the whole genome sequencing to clinical diagnosis pipeline.

Pat looks forward to supporting the complex computing needs of the research being done at CW3E.
