- Software: Slurm, Docker, Jupyterhub, GitLab, Python
- Mentor computer science students who do a huge amount of the work administering those Linux systems, as well as students beginning the CS major who are learning the basic tools
- Contribute to local software written in C, Python, Java, and Bash
- Icelandic field research co-leader: Faculty co-leader of the June 2021 Iceland program. Using UAV’s and image assembly software to empowering scientists to detect underground features. Funded in part by National Geographic!
