- How long have you been with the ICT Department?
- What do you do for ICT?
As part of the Ops group at ICT, Mike Cavallaro and myself are the first line of support. My time is split between a few responsibilities. I manage access to and installation of Maxwell resources such as files, software, printers, etc. A big part of our responsibility is maintaining the hardware in Maxwell and replacing old hardware when it’s at the end of its life cycle, so that is a constant rolling process. Lastly, I respond to any technical problems or issues in the Maxwell community and work with users to resolve issues or answer questions.
- What is the weirdest thing you have ever encountered on a job?
I was asked by a faculty member to help convert a manual on torture to a different format. Not the usual stuff, but I assume they do not use this on students lol…
- Is there anything you would like to share with the Maxwell community about yourself – something they might be surprised to know about you?
I have a real passion for the social sciences. When I was in school, many of these types of classes were my favorite, particularly Sociology and Political Science. I had incredible professors for these classes so that always helps. These were formative experiences for me and they changed my view of the world forever. I read journal articles and publications on these topics to this day.
