We are pleased to welcome T’Mir Julius as AURIN’s new Systems Administrator. T’Mir is the first member of AURIN’s new eInfrastructure team, which will develop the next generation of AURIN capability for the urban, regional and social science research community.
“I’m so excited to be a part of a project that’s striving to use world-class, data-driven research to improve the lives of people everywhere. I’m looking forward to creating the infrastructure needed to make quality data analysis an inclusive domain within the reach of all decision makers,” says T’Mir.
T’Mir started her IT career at age 13 working in her parents’ ISP, internet cafe, and computer repair store. She holds a BSc (Hons) and a PhD in Experimental Particle Physics from the University of Melbourne. Through her thesis she investigated the matter/anti-matter asymmetry present in the Universe using data collected at the KEKB particle collider in Tsukuba, Japan.
T’Mir has over a decade’s experience in data science as a researcher, software developer, and systems administrator. While her research career has taken her through fields such as Physics, Econometrics, Meteorology, and now Urban Design, the common thread of cutting-edge, data-driven research using cloud-based architecture has become a defining feature of her work.
