Assisted and mentored junior developers contributing to the projects and supported scientists publishing Apps on the platform.

Scientific Applications / Research Tecchnologies @ Indiana Univ (2015-2017)

Consulted and supported researchers from various scientific domains. Developed applications for Astronomy, Bioinformatics, and Radiology enabling researchers to access large datasets and orchestrate HPC/HTC workflows via modern web UI.

Built a highly-available docker based cluster infrastructure with sensu alert and monitoring as well as centralized logging and analysis system using ELK. [Docker, pm2, sensu, ELK, nginx, LVS/Keepalived]

Implemented NOAO/WIYN One Degree Imager (ODI) Portal allowing user to search atronomical archive and view images through zoomable HTML5/canvas based HDR image viewer, and submit image processing workflows. HTML5/Canvas, PHP, Python, Javascript, Bootstrap, jQuery, Angular, RabbitMQ

Open Science Grid @ Indiana University (2008 - 2015)

Developed numbers of front and backend systems for Open Science Grid allowing operation team to effectively organize topological information of OSG computing resources, to synchronize support tickets across different ticketing systems, and to orchestrate x509 certificate issuance and revocation workflows accredited by IGTF. Implemented various scientific workflows such as a system that can execute large BLAST gene sequence queries on DHTC environment.

Implemented and provided 24x7 support for various OSG’s central services such as: an XMPP-based notification system that can relay real time ticketing / resource information to OSG support staff; a public trouble ticket submissions interface / automatic routing system; a ticket exchange system that can synchronize trouble tickets across many ticketing systems PHP/Zend, XMPP,SOAP, Jira, Remedy, ServiceNow, RT

Implemented LVS/HA networking infrastructure that eliminates service outage during routine maintenance. Volunteered to research and promote new tools and architectures by hosting discussions and presentations of new technologies and industry best practices KVM/QEMU, Cloud-Config, OpenStack, Docker, AngularJS, DevOps, CI/CD, BTSync, Jenkins, Ansible, Usability Testings

Citigroup @ Acxiom (2007 - 2008)

Implemented web applications for security entitlement review and various auditing activities conducted by citigroup PHP/Zend, MVC, Oracle, ExtJS, Ajax/jQuery

EMC @ Acxiom (2005 - 2007)

Developed business intelligence / analytics components for grid-enabled ETL engines allowing users to execute a SAS/SPSS on massively parallel environment. SAS, SPSS, IBM Datastage, Pentaho Kettle, ETL

Market Management Applications @ Acxiom (2001 - 2005)

Implemented “SAS Grid Service” that allowed users to access SAS GUI remotely for Discover that can take advantage of remote computing resource and data storage.

Implemented a web application used by Acxiom allowing them to access account data, schedule jobs, and other common tasks performed by analysts via a web UI .NET/C#, JBoss, SQL Server

Developed and optimized campaign management applications used by various large financial and media companies. The applications allowed users to graphically define search queries to perform campaign management activities. Implemented a query language parser, which can bidirectionally synchronize user activities on the GUI and text editor using command objects Bison / Yacc, Java, Corba, MFC
