Python is the primary programming language for my group. Occasionally we use Julia for some problems.

My Cluster (, local access only)

  • There are currently nine nodes, most with 64GB RAM. 
  • The compute nodes can only be accessed from master.
  • The /home and /software folders are shared among the nodes.
