Alex Romosan holds a B.S. in applied science from University of Toronto and a Ph.D. in high energy physics from Columbia University. From 1997 to 2001 he was a postdoctoral research associate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory working on the BaBar experiment at SLAC. Since 2001 he has been a member of the Scientific Data Management group. Alex has designed and implemented systems to address numerous aspects of data management requirements in support of the analysis of large volumes of scientific data. He made contributions in the area of algorithm development for the purpose of optimally scheduling compute jobs on a cluster of servers and has been studying the effects of various caching and acceptance policies on the behavior of the Storage Resource Manager. He is currently working on the ASCEM project (data management of groundwater contamination wells database system), and efficient genome properties search project.
