My position at the Research Computing Service team involves training and user support. I coordinate and develop courses ranging from introductory hands-on HPC to more advanced topics. The courses are delivered as a joint effort between the Research Computing Service and the Computational Methods Hub.  For the list of classes, see the the RCS site.

I have a background in molecular biology and bioinformatics. During my postdoctoral training, while studying genetic disease gene networks, I migrated from bioinformatics research to HPC. Subsequently, I spent six years as a member of the research computing group at the University of Oslo focusing a Galaxy based GUI portal to cluster computing and on general bioinformatics support.
