Jeanette Sperhac

Scientific Programmer

Jeanette joined the Center for Computational Research in 2012. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Chicago, a Master of Science in Chemistry from the University of Colorado, and a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University at Buffalo.

Projects

Jeanette supports a number of software engineering and web application projects at CCR, including:

- The VIDIA platform supports the analysis of large datasets for social sciences coursework.  Using the VIDIA platform, collaborator SUNY Oneonta has integrated text analytics into their undergraduate Sociology, Political Science, and Philosophy curricula.

- XDMoD is a comprehensive auditing framework used by XSEDE high performance computing centers to provide metrics regarding resource utilization, resource performance, application performance, quality of service, and impact on scholarship and research.

- The AAHSL Portal is a web-based portal for the collection, analysis, and presentation of electronic data collected via a survey of United States and Canadian academic health sciences libraries.

- The HPC-NY portal is a partnership between NYSERNet, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Stony Brook University/Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the University at Buffalo.

- The VHub portal supports collaboration in volcanology research and risk mitigation. VHub enables sharing and development of tools to model volcanic processes and analyze data, and to communicate with the volcanology community.

Teaching

From 2013 on, Jeanette has been the primary instructor for the Eric Pitman Annual Summer Workshop in Computational Science, hosted at CCR.
