Hi all! I’m Allison, and I have the great pleasure of being one of the participants in the 2019 Summer of HPC Program. I am Canadian born, Australian raised, and I have just finished studying in Spain. My professional background is in analytics and research, and my recently completed Masters in Big Data Solutions led me to the PRACE summer program.
Following this exciting orientation week in Bologna, I will be heading to Amsterdam. There, I will spend eight weeks working on a Data Architecture project with the e-Ecology team at SURFsara. The goal is to improve how ornithologists query and analyse bird migration radar data. My expertise is more in analytics and Data Science (rather than Data Engineering), so this summer is going to be an exciting new challenge! I can’t wait to begin 🙂
