Phillip Pfeiffer - Datamux
Phil Pfeiffer (B.S. [CS], Yale, 1976; M.S. [CS], Wisconsin, 1986; Ph.D. [CS], Wisconsin, 1991) currently serves as professor and associate graduate coordinator for East TN State University's Dept. of Computer and Information Sciences. Phil has also worked as a programmer-analyst for PPG Industries (1977-1984) and served as a consultant to the (former) Supercomputing Research Center (1992-1993) and, more recently, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (2003-2004), where he architected ORNL's Resource Allocation and Tracking System (RATS) for cross-CCS supercomputer usage tracking. This work for ORNL included the development-- and, more recently, the re-development and open-sourcing-- of Datamux, a "data pump" for transferring data from upstream to downstream datasets, and also validating and transforming that data while "in flight".
