Prior to joining Research Computing Support team in 2013, Lev carried out research in the area of computational chemistry, molecular modelling, structural biology and protein dynamics simulations. Apart from providing advanced applications support, he is actively involved in getting undergraduates engaged with HPC as a staff advisor to the Student Cluster Competition. Lev is also a big proponent of bringing HPC into the classroom with the Scholar project.
