Elizabeth Bautista is the Manager for the Operations Technology Group (OTG) at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center. The group ensures 24x7 accessibility, reliability, and security of NERSC's High Performance Systems, data storage systems. NERSC is the primary scientific computing facility for the Office of Science in the U.S. Department of Energy.
Bautista's team manages a 120 TB Elastic stack data collection infrastructure that collects at a rate of 25,000 data points/second. The types of datasets range from the facility environment (power, temperature, humidity) to storage I/O to system logs of the HPC systems and support services. This information is to provide alerts to manage the facility but also to correlate data to provide business decisions and analysis to provide future trends.
Bautista supports programs that seek to involve minorities and women in STEM and advocates that the next generation of professionals has practical hands-on training as part of their education. In her career, she has served as a member of the Lab’s Computing Science Diversity Group, is a member of Women Scientists and Engineers, was a delegate in the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA), a staff advocate group, she champions issues of retention and diversity and is the founder of Filipinas in Computing, a community in the Grace Hopper Conference. Bautista was named one of 100 most influential Filipina Women Globally in 2015. She has a B.S. in Computer Information Systems and an M.B.A. in Technical Management both from Golden Gate University.
