Katie Antypas is the division deputy and Data Department head at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She was the project director of the NERSC-8 Cori supercomputer deployed in 2016 and served as the project director for the NERSC-9 Perlmutter system from 2017 to 2019. Katie is a co-investigator on the ASCR research project titled, “Science Search: Automated MetaData Using Machine Learning” and is interested in how experimental science facilities can leverage high-performance computing (HPC). Also among her interests are application readiness for advanced architecture systems, I/O performance, data movement and management, and supporting experimental science on HPC systems. Before coming to NERSC, Katie worked at the ASC Flash Center at the University of Chicago on the FLASH code, a highly scalable, parallel, adaptive mesh refinement astrophysics application. She has an M.S. in computer science from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in physics from Wellesley College.
