Mike Hallock received his undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois in 2004, and since graduating has worked in the Computer Center of the School of Chemical Sciences as a Research Programmer and supports high-performance computing resources for the departments of Chemistry and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. After taking an interest in the research going on in the department, he went in to a graduate program and completed a Masters in Bioinformatics at the University of Illinois in 2014. Mike took an interest in GPU computing and began working with the Luthey-Schulten group on Lattice Microbes, working on further accelerating RDME simulations by combining the computing power of multiple GPUs. He now leads development of Lattice Microbes, helping researchers to build and simulate whole-cell models of growing complexity. Mike is also a co-author of pyLM, the Python problem-solving environment for building cellular models and analyzing simulations.
