Scientific Systems Engineer
Jarett began his career in technology at Fordham University, working with university administration to pioneer a single-sign-on system for file sharing as part of his senior thesis for his B.S. in Computer Science. He went on to work in industry, attended the University of Notre Dame to obtain his M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering, and then joined the social science department to enable research computing for those faculty and students, performing as an internal technology consultant for statistical analysis for psychologists, sociologists and economists. Moving to Washington, DC, he began work in political technology, including a stint as the systems lead for the 2013 Presidential Inauguration, where he planned, designed and built the network and server infrastructure there for over 3000 users. Joining BioTeam in 2016, he now specializes in HPC infrastructure and application software.
Jarett is a Ham radio enthusiast, snowboarder, karaoke singer and electric bike enthusiast. He has found that the electric bike is the perfect commuting machine for the Metro DC area and will expound upon this subject at length if you give him the slightest opening.
Jarett has an MS in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, where he studied alternative computing architectures in the form of magnetic quantum cellular automata. His thesis work was on an interface between MQCA and standard transistor logic, using the giant magnetoresistive effect simulated in the OOMMF micromagnetic framework.
His IT background began in college with his senior thesis work on single-sign-on applications in open source software, expanded during his professional career, including independent consulting during graduate school, and matured afterward in the crucible of the DC technology scene.
