Burt Holzman has been innovating with scientific computing for more than a decade at Fermilab. He has served as a developer, early adopter, and proponent of the Open Science Grid. He has managed Fermilab’s compute and storage facilities on behalf of the CMS Experiment. He oversaw the development and deployment of the HEPCloud program, enabling the data center to transparently and elastically scale compute capacity to commercial cloud providers and partner institutions. He is currently leading the Elastic Analysis Facility program, with the goal of bringing making AI and Big Data low-latency analysis techniques available to researchers as a service. His research interests include applying AI to datacenter management and providing access to heterogeneous computing for AI to the HEP community.

He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
