UM CS Student Tim Anderson working with Berkeley Labs

Tim Anderson is a PhD student in the Wheeler lab, where he develops advanced reconfigurable computing solutions to fundamental computational problems in analysis of genomics data. In April 2018, Tim traveled to the Lawrence Berkeley National Labs to work with experts in the Computational Research Division, where he gained experience with cutting-edge methodologies of designing solutions on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Since returning to Missoula, he’s built on that experience, developing new FPGA-based methods for search of massive-scale DNA sequence databases. The goal of his work is to save tens of millions of compute hours in data centers around the world, yielding faster results with lower energy consumption. Stay tuned for his  publication.
