Julia Lane is the Executive Director of the Center for Data and Computing, responsible for shaping and executing the strategic vision of CDAC, building new research partnerships and outreach strategies to foster interdisciplinary collaborations, and ensuring that the University continues to broaden applications of data science and computing approaches.

Jesse London is a software engineer at the Center for Data and Computing, where he contributes to the CDAC Open-Source Initiative.

Guilherme Martins is the Senior Programming Specialist at CDAC. Guilherme has contributed to critical research projects bringing an extensive domain knowledge expertise acquired over his years in the industry and academia. His skillset includes embedded software development for specialized hardware, data engineering, and software automation.¬†¬†Most recently, he developed a method for summarizing network traffic utilization while retaining critical information of over-the-top consumer internet applications such as Netflix, Youtube, Amazon, and Facebook. With fine-grain information about their internet utilization, internet consumers are now empowered to make data-driven decisions regarding their home internet infrastructure. The design and implementation of the software allow extensibility and open an interface to new applications ranging from performance monitoring to network security. He’ll be working closely with Nick Feamster and other Principal Investigators to establish data analysis pipelines.
