Hi there! I'm Eugene.
I'm a South African and currently work as the systems/cloud/atuomation engineer over at the South African National Bioinformatics Institute, or SANBI for short.
As a brief summary of my education: I studied undergraduate Computer Science at the University of the Western Cape and achieved First Honours (Cum Laude) for that. I did my 4th year (Honours for South Africa and possibly some other regions) at University of Cape Town, where I also achieved First Honours again, also for Computer Science. For my Masters, I decided to try my hand at Bioinformatics. My thesis was on " Enabling the processing of bioinformatics workflows where data is located through the use of cloud and container technologies" and I managed to achieve First Honours for this as well.
Since this, my main focus has been on infrastructure, whether that be cloud or HPC. Everything around that, especially automation, is a keen interest of mine.
