Joe leads the Cloud and Interactive Computing (CIC) group, which focuses on building cloud native applications and infrastructure for computational science. CIC develops, deploys and maintains multiple national-scale clouds as part of ongoing projects funded by the National Science Foundation. Additionally, the CIC group contributes to and deploys multiple cloud platforms-as-a-service for computational science including the Agave science-as-a-service platform, TACC's custom JupyterHub, and Abaco: Functions-as-a-service via the Actor model and Linux containers. These platforms are leveraged by numerous cyberinfrastructure projects used by tens of thousands of investigators across various domains of science and engineering.
Prior to joining the University of Texas, Joe received a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Texas, Austin and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Michigan. His recent interests include distributed systems, container technologies and interactive scientific computing.
