As ARCTIC founder, Suranga considers computational science as a very important aspect of the scientific process. Infect it is evolving to become the third “pillar” of science. Computer simulations provide a valuable tool for scientists to explore phenomena that are otherwise not possible to observe using theory or experiment.
Possibilities are limitless with computational science. With Scientific simulations, one can explore very large parameter spaces with the use of high-performance computing, generate models with a large number of parameters, and model fit to almost any function with the use of ample computational resources available these days.
Here at ARCTIC, our team tries to facilitate large-scale scientific computing studies providing the high-performance computing infrastructure necessary to perform a huge number of arithmetic operations as well as I/O operations as efficiently as possible.
Suranga began his career as a researcher studying charge transfer in small molecular systems. He holds a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics from Georgia State and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Sanju graduated with a Master in Computer Science from Kennesaw State University. She is interested in big data and machine learning and passionate about learning new technology and processes to make the system user-friendly. She loves to travel and do waterfall hikes in her free time.
After early education in Culinary Arts and a career as a professional chef, Scott found a new passion for Information Technology. He saw how the world was evolving and how he could aid in that evolution through the application of Computer Science. Scott's goal is to make a positive indelible impression within Research Solutions at Georgia State University.
Alexandre graduated from Georgia State University in 2021 with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. His real passion comes from applying his knowledge to building computer applications and web services. During his free time, Alexandre loves to run outside. He also loves to cook delicious barbecues during the weekends.
John holds a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems and has been certified as an Amazon Web Services Solution Architect since 2016. He has experience across the computer spectrum from programming web applications to building cloud environments. His responsibilities at Arctic include automating code deployments, continuous integration of cluster services, and system engineering. When he is not busy developing, he is cooking tasty vegetarian cuisine, collecting cryptocurrencies, bodybuilding, or visiting family.
Chris is a software engineer with ARCTIC where he develops tools, workflows, and websites that directly interface with the HPC cluster. Chris has an M.S. in Computer Science and B.S in Physics from the University of West Georgia where he worked for 10 years in Accessibility Services.He spends his free time outdoors, whether it be paddleboarding or hiking dependent on the season.
