About Adam

Hi, my name is Adam DeConinck.

I am a systems administratior and sometime software developer, mostly focussed on building, managing, and optimizing high-performance computing systems used for science and engineering. (Which is a long-winded way of saying, I do sysadmin on supercomputers!)

I am currently located in Santa Fe, NM, USA.

My professional interests also include distributed systems, automation of system administration in both the cloud and the datacenter, and making scientific computing systems easier to set up and use for working scientists. In the past I’ve done research in physics and materials science, mostly oriented towards microfluidics and “soft materials” systems.

(See my LinkedIn page for a summary of some of what I’ve worked on in the past.)

Apart from work, I’m also a huge geek: I spend an inordinate amount of time reading science fiction, playing board games, and hanging out with my equally nerdy wife Leigh. I fence epee, play the trumpet, and spend far too much time on Twitter.

If any of the above sounds interesting, feel free to give me a shout. I love meeting new people and talking about interesting things.
