About the Alan Turing Institute 

The Institute is named in honour of Alan Turing, whose pioneering work in theoretical and applied mathematics, engineering and computing is considered to have laid the foundations for modern-day data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute’s goals are to undertake world-class research in data science and artificial intelligence, apply its research to real-world problems, driving economic impact and societal good, lead the training of a new generation of scientists, and shape the public conversation around data and algorithms.

The Alan Turing Institute & RDA

The Alan Turing Institute seeks to participate in both the development and adaptation of new standards and protocols of data sharing technologies. As a member of the RCA they hope to be able to contribute to this and also to the future direction of RDA.

Tomas Lazauskas
The Alan Turing Institute, UK

  Tomas is a Senior HPC Research Software Engineer at The Alan Turing Institute. He has a PhD in Mathematical Sciences from Loughborough University, which involved developing and applying novel computer simulation techniques to model radiation effects in materials. Tomas’s focus is developing reliable, scalable and reusable software that aims to solve challenging computational problems. He is particularly interested in cloud and high performance computing (HPC) and is the lead on the HPC side of things. Before joining the Turing, Tomas was Research Associate at UCL, helping to develop, maintain, and optimise in-house HPC software to perform complex simulations and turn terabytes of results' data into useful information. He also has experience working as a programmer in the commercial sector and creating mobile applications and financial modelling tools as an independent developer.
