    Colloqium: Trait-based aerial dispersal of symbiotic microbes 

    Abstract: Dispersal is a fundamental process influencing both large-scale biogeographical patterns and local community assembly, but considerable knowledge gaps exist for dispersal of microbial fungi that form Earth’s most common symbioses. Variation in dispersal is predicted among species due to variation in spore traits, but these predictions have yet to be empirically tested. Furthermore, passive accumulation of fungal propagules in urban environments suggests rapid aerial dispersal. Using field experiments, functional traits, and high-throughput sequencing we investigate the prevalence and patterns of aerial dispersal of fungi. These data inform microbial dispersal conceptual models and guide predictions about how stochastic processes drive microbial biogeography and community structure.

    Bio: Dr. Bala Chaudhary is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Studies at DePaul University in Chicago. She is a trained biological scientist, conducting her undergraduate degree at the University of Chicago and her MS and PhD at Northern Arizona University. Research in her lab examines plant-soil-microbial ecology to address landscape-scale questions in natural and managed ecosystems from deserts to rain forests to cities. Bala has numerous publications in high profile journals and, in 2019, she received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to study microbial biogeography as well as ways to promote racial and ethnic diversity in STEM.

    Colloquim: Reproducible Distributed Systems Benchmarking With Container-native Workflows 

    Experimenting with complex software systems requires practitioners to follow a list of quite onerous steps in order to get it right. Properly carrying out an experiment requires setting up infrastructure; deploying the software system under study; baselining the infrastructure; installing analysis utilities; running experiment commands and scripts iteratively; plotting and analyzing results; among others. Performing these steps manually can be cumbersome and error-prone. In this talk, I present our work on automating experimentation workflows using the Popper container-native workflow automation engine. We give an overview of workflow tools, container- and cloud-native workflow engines, and introduce Popper. To exemplify the utility of this approach, we show example workflows used in our laboratory for benchmarking and baselining Ceph, a storage management platform. Lastly, I briefly introduce and present benchmarking results for SkyhookDM, a Ceph extension that offloads computation and other data management tasks to the storage layer in order to reduce client-side resources needed for data processing in terms of CPU, memory, IO, and network traffic.

    Bio: Ivo is a Research Scientist at UC Santa Cruz; an Incubator Fellow at the UC Santa Cruz Center for Research on Open Source Software (CROSS); and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Sonora (Mexico). Ivo is interested in large-scale distributed data management systems, applied aspects of data science, and reproducibility. Ivo’s 2019 PhD dissertation focused on the practical aspects in the reproducible evaluation of systems research, work for which Ivo was awarded the 2018 Better Scientific Software Fellowship. Ivo is currently working on Popper, as part of the CROSS Incubator Program.
