Ceasar Jackson Jr.
Technical Professional whose 20+ years of real-world IT expertise encompasses: Business Intelligence, Systems Administration, Project Management, Application Development, Data Analysis, Manufacturing, and SAP. Began in scientific roles for experimental research & development, cultivating excellent analytical skill using & creating emerging technology for Data acquisition, ingest, analysis, & exploitation.
• Agile/Scrum Methodology • Linux (RHEL, Ubuntu, Centos, Debian, Mint)
• Advanced Algorithms & predictive models • Windows Active Directory & PowerShell
• Advanced Database Applications for relational non- relational databases (NoSQL)
• Experience using Configuration Management tools
(Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Docker, GIT, Subversion, etc.)
• Using UNIX command line utilities Sed & Awk to
process very large and often very messy datasets
Professional Experience Highlights
Senior Systems Analyst/Administrator May 2016 – Present US Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) – Arlington, VA
• Maintain a 72 Pb hybrid cluster consisting of 38 AWS GovCloud instances, 4 Windows 2012 R2 servers, 8 Windows 2016 R2 servers, and 4 RHEL 7.x Linux boxes
• Data acquisition, ingest, analysis, & exploitation
Develop tools and libraries to help analytics team members more efficiently interface with data
Ensure data quality, perform data normalization, build pipelines to auto-update data Experimental Physicist/Data Scientist August 1999 – May 2016 Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) – Newport News, VA
• Algorithms, statistical modeling, ETL, database programming, & data processing, ingest, analysis, exploitation
• Developed Nuclear Targets and Calibration Systems for the MINER A Neutrino Experiment (Fermilab) Analyzed 50 Pb of sensor & detector data to accomplish – http://minerva.fnal.gov/
• Managed a group of 8 graduate students and 6 university professors in designing, simulating, and fabricating the Inner Detector of ATLAS (CERN) on the Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) – https://atlas.cern/discover/experiment, The ATLAS Detector,
Analyzed 35 Pb of sensor & detector data combined with 50 Pb of Experimental Data
Over a billion particle interactions take place in the ATLAS detector every second, a data rate equivalent to 20 simultaneous telephone conversations held by every person on the earth. Only one in a million collisions are flagged as potentially interesting and recorded for further study.
The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the discovery of the Higgs Boson, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
