Dr. Tyler Skluzacek

Tyler J. Skluzacek, Ph.D.



I am a research scientist in the Workflow and Ecosystem Services (WES) group at the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) at Oak Ridge National Lab. Additionally, I am an Adjunct Professor in the Computing and Data Analytics Department at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL. I am also the original founder of the NightWare (previously myBivy) application for monitoring and treating nightmares in patients with PTSD.

My work crosses the thresholds of data science and distributed computing, with a primary focus on designing distributed workflow orchestration systems capable of handling expansive compute requirements and data volumes. I build these systems so that the lab can perform autonomous experimentation. My data science expertise spans statistical and deep learning approaches for search-driven data mining and time series analytics.

I stay actively involved in the computing community. I am currently serving as the publicity chair for eScience '24, and have previously served on program committees for SC, HPDC, IPDPS, ICPP, and SciPy. I served on the curriculum development team for the Data4All bridge workshop for South-Chicago high school students.
