Biography

Dr. Berman began his High Performance Computing career working for the Computer Science department at the University of Texas at Austin as an undergraduate in Biology/Zoology. In the following two postdoctoral fellowships at UCSF and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, Ari developed and maintained HPC infrastructure to assist in his research in mouse model development and neurodegenerative diseases. In the final year of his final Postdoc, Ari gained IT expertise in disaster recovery, high-availability, data security, and centralized high-performance, high-volume storage systems. Since joining BioTeam, Ari has focused on larger-sized projects, mainly with the Federal Government, in an attempt to positively impact the scientific computing capabilities of the nation’s biomedical sciences industry. These efforts recently led him to direct Bioteam’s government efforts.  Ari’s career goals are to seamlessly combine his HPC/hardware infrastructure skills with his biology/bionformatics and software development skills to provide the industry with state-of-the art equipment configured to enable science.
