Prof. Wuerthwein’s primary research interest lies in the search for new phenomena at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). He is particularly interested in the production of dark matter and its subsequent study, using the LHC as his laboratory. As an experimentalist, he has a strong interest in instrumentation and data analysis. From the last decade or two to the present, this has meant developing, deploying, and now operating a worldwide distributed computing system for high throughput computing with large data volumes. In 2010, “large” meant Petabytes. By 2020, this is expected to grow to Exabytes. Prof. Wuerthwein will describe the basic goals and principles of OSG, with a special focus on use in the life sciences.
